Designing cultural probes for children
This paper reports on the challenges faced during the design and deployment of educationally-focused cultural probes with children. The aim of the project was to use cultural probes to discover insights into children’s interests and ideas within an educational context. The deployment of a cultural probe pack with children aged between 11 and 13 has demonstrated the method’s effectiveness as a tool for design inspiration. Children’s responses to the cultural probe have provided a valuable insight into the attributes of successful probe activities, the nature of contextual information which may be gathered and the limitations of the method. Author Keywords Children, cultural probes, educational technology ACM Classification Keywords H5.m. Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI): Miscellaneous.
