Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The research reported in this thesis investigates preschoolers‟ interactions with interactive television applications. The study involved the development of an electronic programme guide prototype and the empirical evaluation thereof. There were three main aims. The first aim was to analyse children‟s interactions and illustrate them in a framework to further understanding of the way preschoolers interact with the television. The second aim was to contribute design principles for preschool interactive television and the third aim was to refine methods and add to the knowledge of design and evaluation techniques involving young children.
