The self-documentation practices

Discover, Method, Resource created by D4CR

The main aim in self-documentation practices is to collect data about children’s understanding of a certain concept. The emphasis here is on visualising and materialising different concepts for kids so that they can relate on them.

Focus on children first-hand experiences through a diversity of strategies, such as

  • Bricolage
  • Hacking
  • Fast-prototyping

and techniques, such as

  • Cultural probes
  • Mood mapping

Always consider the target group’s level of knowledge and the context.
