Transcript of Human Centered Design -- Parents Connect

Human-Centered Design and Parents Connect By Adrienne Kupper
IDT 501 Final Project Inclusiveness Engagement Transcendence Malleability Responsiveness Human-Centered
Design Successes Human-Centered
Design Failures This site, www.parentsconnect.com, is by Nickelodeon and attempts to be a comprehensive resource for parents. There is information on the site about everything from learning and development to parenting styles and weekend activities. It is meant to be a resource for people who are expecting children as well as those who have children (from infants through tweens and teens). Cooley describes inclusiveness as something that
"should be inviting and tends to invite you in and
make you feel part of a community of activities
with which you are familiar and on friendly
terms" (p.68). Cooley describes engagement as "a sense
that one is being invited to participate in the
process and which creates a feeling of empathy" (p.68). Cooley describes transcendence as an approach in which"the users should be encouraged, enticed, and even provoked to transcend the immediate task requirements" (p. 69). Cooley describes malleability as "A possibility to
mold the situation to suit, to pick-and-mix and
sculpt the environment to suit one's own
instrumental needs, aesthetic tastes, and craft
traditions" (p.68). Cooley describes responsiveness as "a general sense that you can get the system to respond to your requirements and your individual needs and ways of doing things" (68). Resources Parent Connect -- www.parentsconnect.com
