Co-designing a new educational tablet app for preschoolers

Abstract : This paper describes a French research project to co-design an early literacy/early numeracy tablet app for kindergarten students. In order to create an app that takes into account classroom/teaching constraints and the results of recent research, we adopted a theoretical co-design framework and followed a methodology involving researchers, education professionals and software engineers. We describe the design process and the app’s educational content, together with the results of an initial trial of the app on a small sample of preschoolers, which showed that it is ready for larger scale testing. We conclude by discussing the specificities of our project and its contribution to the literature on the development of classroom apps for preschoolers.
