about

The doctoral thesis of Tatiana Gossen formulates criteria and guidelines on how to design the user interfaces of search engines for children. In her work, the author identifies the conceptual challenges based on own and previous user studies and addresses the changing characteristics of the users by providing a means of adaptation. Additionally, a novel type of search result visualisation for children with cartoon style characters is developed taking children's preference for visual information into account.

Tatiana Gossen is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg.

Editorial Reviews

"This book focuses on a very important educational subject matter: the proper usage of search engines for children. . The impressive list of 195 references assures the reader that this book is comprehensive; the cataloging of the author's 15 prior publications and three published studies on the subject matter indicates that she is the right person for the job." (Michael Goldberg and R. Goldberg, Computing Reviews, January, 2017)
