- 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:
- 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?
- How do domain experts evaluate the viability of the game prototype to empower kids with CF and achieve EYLF learning outcomes?
- Does the game prototype show signs of achieving its goals around improving need satisfaction and social wellbeing in the target audience?
