Title:Children's Information Seeking and the Design of Digital Interfaces in the Affective Paradigm
Author(s):Bilal, Dania
Subject(s):Children and digital resources
Interface design
Abstract:Research reveals that affect imparts directionality to cognition, which in turn infl uences actions. The role of affect has been well recognized in psychology, computing, education, cognitive science, and neuroscience. However, little recognition has been given to the study of affect in the fi eld of information science. In this article the term “affective paradigm” is introduced based on research grounded in many disciplines. 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.
