Young Kids CRAVE Deep Content

This session aims to make sophisticated content more accessible and compelling to young children. They are interested in solar systems, dolphin communication and building construction yet websites and apps with related content are often inaccessible to them if they can't read at a high level. Using ideas from development economics and childhood education, participants will be encouraged and guided on how to plan for, design and revise websites and apps that can bring deep content to children.

Additional Supporting Materials


  1. What type/level of content depth are young children interested in online?
  2. What kinds of topics are young children pursuing in depth at school?
  3. What kinds of mechanisms make content more accessible to children who cannot read?
