Presser, A. L., Vahey, P., & Zanchi, C. (2013, 24-27 June). Designing early childhood math games: a research-driven approach. Paper presented at the International Conference on Interaction Design and Children (IDC 2013), New York, NY.
This paper describes the iterative research and development process used by the Next Generation Preschool Math project, which integrates content analysis, logic model processes, and iterative design and research approaches. An innovative aspect of this process is the inclusion of an adapted version of evidence-centered design—an approach traditionally used to create assessments—to align the mathematical goals with the design of instructional materials as well as with the assessment.
