There's an App for That! Distinctive features of apps for young children

PhD student: Francette Broekman MSc


Francette Broekman investigates to what extent apps for young children (3 to 6 years of age) have distinctive features that make them particularly suited to stimulate children’s development.

She starts this project exploring parental needs and preferences in apps for children and distinctive features of apps that researchers and media creators identify as important. Then, she will examine the prevalence of these identified features in current apps for young children. Finally, the impact of these features in apps on children’s development will be investigated.
