Being Explicit about Underlying Values, Assumptions and Views when Designing for Children in the IDC Community

In this workshop we want to discuss how the IDC community can make underlying assumptions, values and views regarding children and childhood in making design decisions more explicit. What assumptions do IDC designers and researchers make, and how can they be supported in reflecting on those assumptions and the possible influences on their design decisions? How can we make the assumptions explicit, discuss them in the IDC community and use the discussion to develop higher quality design and research? The workshop will support discussion between researchers, designers and practitioners, and intends to share different approaches for uncovering and reflecting on values, assumptions and views about children and childhood in design.
