anatomy of a design session
You have probably read or heard about designing with children in any number of ACM publications or conferences. Whether we research- ers and designers ask the opinions of children about technology or work with them in the design of new technologies, the literature is ripe with discussions of methods used and new techniques devel- oped for working with children. Unfortunately, the more “pedestri- an” concepts of organizing a design session and the logistics of working with a group of children are often mentioned in passing, as the main contribution of the work, meth- ods and techniques, rarely go into much detail beyond what is neces- sary to extol the new contribution’s virtues. I know I am guilty of this.
