Children's Information Seeking and the Design of Digital Interfaces in the Affective Paradigm

Dania Bilal
2005 Library Trends  
However, little recognition has been given to the study of affect in the fi eld of information science.  ...  Research that investigated children's affect in seeking information and participating in the design of digital interfaces is reviewed. Unanswered questions in these areas of study are addressed.  ...  s failure to meet children's needs and support their information seeking have led many researchers to design interfaces from children's perspectives by involving them in the design process.  ...

Differences and similarities in information seeking: children and adults as Web users

Dania Bilal, Joe Kirby
2002 Information Processing & Management  
This study examined the success and information seeking behaviors of seventh-grade science students and graduate students in information science in using Yahooligans! Web search engine/directory.  ...  Unlike children, graduate students were able to recover from "breakdowns" quickly and effectively.  ...  Little is also known about how well the interface design of Web search engines supports user information seeking.  ...

Supporting children's web search in school environments

Carsten Eickhoff, Pieter Dekker, Arjen P. de Vries
2012 Proceedings of the 4th Information Interaction in Context Symposium on - IIIX '12  
Already in early grades, children are encouraged to search for information on-line.  ...  However, the way in which they interact with state-of-the-art search interfaces and how they explore and interpret the presented information, differs greatly from adult user behaviour.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Allison Druin and Elizabeth Foss for their support and for sharing their original search role coding scheme. This research is part of the PuppyIR project 1 .  ...

"Sometimes the internet reads the question wrong": Children's search strategies & difficulties

Nicholas Vanderschantz, Annika Hinze, Sally Jo Cunningham
2014 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
When children search for information on a given topic, how do they go about searching for and retrieving information?  ...  We interviewed New Zealand (NZ) school children to seek insights into how they are conducting information searches during their education.  ...  We highlight in the following section (Related Work) the paucity of recent literature that reports how modern tools (hardware and software technologies) for children's information seeking can support effective  ...

Multitasking information seeking and searching processes

Amanda Spink, H. Cenk Ozmutlu, Seda Ozmutlu
2002 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Recent studies show that humans engage in multitasking behaviors as they seek and search information retrieval (IR) systems for information on more than one topic at the same time.  ...  Multitasking information seeking and searching is developing as major research area that draws together IR and information seeking studies toward a focus on IR within the context of human information behavior  ...  Research to improve support features for information seeking and searching is in its formative stage.  ...
