Back to Sesame Street: Reviving Developmentally Focused Formative Research

Full Description: 

This Microtalk was presented by Dr. Katherine McMillan Culp at the 7th Annual Games for Change Festival, Games for Learning Day, as part of the panel "Novel research methodologies for games research." Culp discusses challenges facing educational media developers and shares key principles of effective design and development processes. "Conducting this kind of research, to ensure that designers and producers have what they need in order to create media that is comprehensible to children who do not yet know what you want them to come to understand—requires listening very carefully to how someone very different from yourself experiences the world—or more particularly, how they make sense of the materials you are creating to support their learning."
