Art Education and Computational Visualistics in a Research Network: The Development and Evaluation of Software from a Child's Perspective

In the era of Web 2.0, the joy and willingness of children and adolescents to present themselves and their work has increased significantly. Above all, the virtual staging of the self and the presentation of their own image collections are important forms of communication in the current media landscape.

The central concern of the transdisciplinary and exploratory project is to transfer empirical findings on these pictorial-aesthetic forms of expression to the development and evaluation of software. In this way, the media-aesthetic and creative (reflection) abilities of children are to be strengthened and thus the child's perspective is to gain in importance.

The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
