A picture is worth a thousand search results: finding child-oriented multimedia results with collAge
We present a simple and effective approach to complement search results for children's web queries with child-oriented multimedia results, such as coloring pages and music sheets. Our approach determines appropriate media types for a query by searching Google's database of frequent queries for cooccurrences of a query's terms (e.g., "dinosaurs") with preselected multimedia terms (e.g., "coloring pages"). We show the effectiveness of this approach through an online user evaluation. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.5.0 [Information Interfaces and Presentation]: General General Terms Experimentation, Human Factors Keywords children, Google, query suggestion, Mechanical Turk
