User-Centred Computing has a relatively long history and is widely regarded as a good approach for the design, deployment and evaluation of interactive products and systems. Where the potential user of a system is a child, the approach can be re-described as child-centred computing. This raises the question as to what is different when the user is a child and also asks whether there would be other differences in regard to centrality and method. This talk presents the author's view of child-centred computing taking examples from her work over the last five years. The talk will engage with anyone who has ever been or had a child and with anyone who has ever built, used or played with an interactive product.
