Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

Child participation in design is a central focus of Child Computer Interaction (CCI) research, h, however, examples of participatory designresearch with children are primarilythe majority of examples of participatory design approaches involving children have been situated in adult-led contexts (e.g. design lab, classroom, museum), where design objectives, activities and tools are designed devised and facilitated by adults. In this paper, we contribute to current discussions of child participation in CCI byby describing a participatory study situated within the ‘child-leda child-led nature-play contexts’ of nine children (7-11 years). in nature. , specifically the nominated nature-play contexts of children that emerge at the exclusion of adults. By adapting the role of ‘least-adult’ originally described inin the field of Childhood Studies literature, we describe how tothis role can be established to access these exclusive play places establish this role within child-led contexts and thenand maintain this rolemaintained through co-inquiry into each child’s unique play practice. whilst carrying out a participatory intervention with children. This research contributes to current discussions of child participation in CCI firstly byby (i) introducing introducing the role of ‘least-adult’ as a newan approach to carrying outengaging with children through participatory research, (ii) recognising the influence of ‘place’ in shaping child participation, and (iii) pointing to spatial-temporal contextual factors as an important factor for enabling and shaping participatory research
