Cystic Fibrosis Queensland Collaboration


  • Produce a web-based game prototype using Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) principles to empower kids with cystic fibrosis and their families

The design will incorporate game activities/mechanics in a small prototype (touch-based and currently simulation genre) game aimed at children (aged 3-5) that communicates the following EYLF principles:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity by developing their emerging autonomy, inter-dependence, resilience and sense of agency, and by learning to interact in relation to others with care, empathy and respect;
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world by becoming aware of fairness;
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.

Primary Research Questions:

  1. Can a game prototype be developed focused on key outcomes of the EYLF that is usable and enjoyable for children in the target age-range?
  2. How do domain experts evaluate the viability of the game prototype to empower kids with CF and achieve EYLF learning outcomes?
  3. Does the game prototype show signs of achieving its goals around improving need satisfaction and social wellbeing in the target audience?
