English abstract
This report is the outcome of an exam work made in interaction design, bachelor degree, at the School of Arts and Communication, Malmö University. Working in collaboration with the childhood obesity unit, Region Skåne, our aim was to fulfill their request of a web based application preparing the children for treatment at their facility. Furthermore the application intends to give the children knowledge concerning obesity as well as teaching them how to obtain a healthier lifestyle in terms of provision and activities. The application concerns children in different ages and therefore different stages of their learning abilities. Our conclusions are that they need to be challenged and obtain feedback in different ways to get motivated. For a younger child it is often enough with feedback in terms of a voice approving their choices. For an older child however it is important to constantly challenge them in order to maintain their interest. This can for example be achieved by making tasks harder but still obviously reachable within the children’s capabilities. Adding different difficulty levels is another way to motivate and challenge children in different ages and stadiums of development. The report leads you through our complete design process, from our initial ideas to our latest prototype. We describe what context in which we have been working, the methods we have been using, and finally a discussion concerning the results and conclusions we have made.
