Usability testing with children: a lesson from Piaget
In this post, Sabina Idler, information designer at Usabilla (The Netherlands), introduces Piagetâ€™s theory of cognitive growth and explains how it can be useful for usability testing with children.
“Children are becoming an increasingly important target group on the web. Good usability and high user experience are crucial aspects for a successful website. Early and repetitive user testing is the way to go. If we address children on our website, we need to focus on what they want. We need to include children as a target group in our user testing. In this post Iâ€™d like to take a look at usability testing with different age groups.”
