Abstract

This paper presents the stakeholder centred design of an educational game for children, aged 3 to 8 years old, with type-1 diabetes. The novelty of the approach is the multi-stakeholder approach to design and evaluation (diabetes consultants, nurses, parents and children) and the creation of a tangible interface game for interactive learning of diabetes concepts for children aged 3-8.
