Abstract

In this paper, two participatory design toolkits for designing information architecture are introduced. They allow children to participate in the design process as design partners and build information structure that reflects their cognitive process. The toolkits were applied to find usability problems in the directory of Korean Yahooligans(kr.kids.yahoo.com). The result shows that children's information architecture differs from that of adults in depth and width, contents, and relationship between keywords; and that the toolkits can elicit users' needs effectively.
