web application design, UI/UX design, design research
For my Master project in Media, Art and Design, I created a web application that would help 10-12 year olds with learning how to plan their day, week and month—not just their school activities but their personal activities as well. As part of my thesis, I conducted thorough user research at a local elementary school using assignment booklets, paper prototyping, a group activity and a demo. This allowed me to figure out how the children learned best, what their current knowledge was about planning and what would motivate them most to continue using the planning techniques I had introduced. To help guide them through this process, I included user profiles for the teacher and parents. This would help keep the parents up to date and allow both parties an overview of the children's planning.
