MetadataShow full item record
Children, nowadays, are great consumers of media for them , and there is growing interest towards novel mechanisms that can consider their specific needs and improve both the recommendation process and output of videos for them. Children, in fact, have unique characteristics, which change with age. In particular, in the 8–12 age range, they like challenging interactions with systems, they enjoy exploring and “to feel the experts”. The majority of current recommendation solutions are unable to leverage on such specific features of children, and others, when interacting with them and recommending adequate videos. In this paper, we introduce ITTuB, an exploratory project, set at the intersection of recommender system and interaction design for children. Starting from previous research in the two areas, it plans to introduce tangibles for enhancing the interaction of children with videos, and to leverage stylistic features of videos in order to deliver recommendations that are optimized for children. This workshop paper presents the main ideas of ITTuB.
