UX for digital natives/ designing for children

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. An this impacts the way they act on, interact with, and perceive digital interfaces and the web.

With the increasing amount of time kids spend online, designers and businesses must take responsibility of the experiences they expose kids to. Our job should be to empower kids, not make their lives difficult.

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 for kids in a respectful and empowering way.

The User Centered Process

User centered design is the corner stone of user experience design. If you don’t have a laser focus on the people you make things for, there is no way you are going to ever design a meaningful experience for them.
