Interviews

My team and I conducted 5 interviews with 2 girls and 5 boys (median age: 8) and their parents. Questions we asked are:

  • How far away from home can children go freely?
  • What is the biggest fear when children go outside independently?
  • How do children remember places?
  • How large are children's mental maps of their neighborhood?  
  • How and why do children use smart devices?
  • What are the preferences and familiarity toward existing smart devices?
 

Design Concepts For the Prototypes:

  • familiar device such as portable game consoles. 
  • compass and map for way finding
