Developmentally Situated Design (DSD)

Winner of the DEVICE (Design for Vulnerable Generations) Best Practice Award
There is a wealth of theoretical knowledge about the developmental abilities and skills of children. However, this knowledge is not readily accessible to designers of interactive products. In this project, we are developing and evaluating developmentally situated design (DSD) cards. DSD cards are a design tool that makes age specific information about children’s developing cognitive, physical, social, and emotional abilities readily accessible for designers.
