Theatre Maker: A Role-playing Facilitator for Children
Paper in proceeding, 2016

This paper presents the design of Theatre Maker, a tool for inspiring children between the ages of six to nine to role-play with the aim to help in the development of their social and empathy skills. The design process followed guidelines provided by the Child Computer Interaction field. The different methods used are described, as well as the encounters held with children for testing and co-designing Theatre Maker. Challenges that were present during the design process regarding the target users are analyzed, as are future considerations for further development of Theatre Maker, such as usability testing and refinements of the graphical user interface.
