User centered design of playful interactive technology for children with disablities.
Expertise Contributions*
I have years of experience in research-through-design for playful interactive products for children, based on the concept of open-ended play. This means that we provide play opportunities in the form of interesting and relevant interactions, and the children can create their own games through exploration and social interaction. This rich interaction leads to the further development of social skills as well as cognitive and physical skills.
