Abstract

Designing for and with children today requires a cooperative approach to creative inquiry, recognizing the ways in which they perceive, learn and adapt in complex physical and digital environments, while devising novel tools, methods and technologies that facilitate inclusive and child-centered design. 2013 brings with it an accentuation of trends that we have seen for the past few years in the domain of interaction design and children. Most notable are the increasing ubiquity of computing in children’s lives, the younger ages at which children begin to interact with computers, and the general expectation of interactivity and immediate access to information with which children are growing up.
