Designing PETS: A personal electronic teller of stories

In today's homes and schools, children are emerging as frequent and experienced users of technology. As this trend continues, it becomes increasingly important to ask if we are fulfilling the technology needs of our children. To answer this question, we have developed a research approach that enables young children to have a voice throughout the technology development process. This video describes our research approach with a team of six children (ages 7-11 years old) and six adult researchers with experience in computer science, education, art, and robotics. In this video, we show our team at work to develop PETS: A Personal Electronic Teller of Stories. This is a new robotic pet that can support children in the storytelling process.
