Title: Design With Children: A Semiotic Approach [design Com Crianças: Uma Abordagem Semiótica]
Author: Melo A.M.

Abstract: Human-Computer Interaction literature has shown the importance of bringing the user to the process of software design and several methodological proposals have been discussed. This type of user involvement in design is not emphasized in the same way in software design for children. In this paper we propose a method based on Semiotic theory for understanding the child's process of signification for design elements in the Internet media, and reflecting this understanding in the design of a portal for children. Our approach draw upon techniques from Participatory Design (PD) and concepts from Organizational Semiotics (OS). PD has shown usefulness in the investigation of children's conceptions for Internet spaces, and OS has shown a sound theoretical approach to represent in ontology charts children's signification to elements of design. The proposed methodology is illustrated with the design process of Caleidoscopio Jr: A Web portal for children designed with them.
