Interaction design and interface design research for children is of critical importance to ensure an educated future generation ready for the technology-focussed world. Significantly, the empirical studies that guide designers, developers, and technologists to support the production of suitable tools for children are under-represented in the scholarly literature. Using evidence from the literature combined with our own recent investigations, we provide a list of requirements for interfaces for children’s educational information seeking. An interaction model and interface design are developed and tested with an expert heuristic evaluation and cognitive walkthrough.
