Designing Web Interfaces for Kids

A session at dsgnday 2015

Friday 13th November, 2015

4:00pm to 4:50pm (AMT)

Through her research with children, games and learning, which she has done for a number of years, Trine Falbe has found that the way kids use interfaces differ a lot from adult interaction patterns. They have different search patterns, language skills, cognitive skills and motor skills. And this has a big impact on the way we should design interfaces when the users are children.

This subject is important, because kids these days use online tools from before they can read. They are growing up in a new paradigm - they have not known the world before the Internet. And this impacts the way they act on, interact with, and perceive the web.

In this talk, Trine will share her insights about the way kids interact with interfaces, how it differs from the interaction patterns of adults, and provide some guidelines on how to design web interfaces for kids.
