Designing for and testing with children

Change it all up

I optimised our design for children between the age of 6 and 12 years old. 

This required me to relook at the way traditional app design and usability testing is done. 

Afterwards, I created a fully functional prototype. 


What do we even ask?

Testing with children required me to change up the way we run a traditional user test. 

I quickly realised that the traditional user questions cannot be asked to children. So I had to change it up and adjust the user test for children.

Blown away

The findings I gathered from the tests were mind-blowing to me and the team. 

We quickly came to realise that children see the digital world entirely different from us. So we adjusted the app to our findings.
