The Social and Cognitive Experiences of Child Design Partners
To be published
HCIL-2012-31

Many researchers have explored the effects of involving children in the technology design processes on the resulting technology; however few have investigated the impact that this design process participation might have on the child design partners themselves. Using a case study method, we explored the social and cognitive experiences of children involved in a Cooperative Inquiry technology design process in partnership with adults over a one year period. Findings indicated that children involved in the technology design process in partnership with adults had social and cognitive experiences in the areas of relationships, enjoyment, confidence, communication, collaboration, skills, and content.
