For designers, academic research papers are often hard to access and apply in practice, due to academic jargon and a lack of actionable guidelines. Our goal is to bridge the research-practice gap to promote the creation of research-driven designs. The IDC (Interaction Design & Children) Toolkit website gives designers easy access to evidence-based and theoretically-driven findings to inform their design and business decisions around children’s products. The toolkit also aims to help researchers better translate research findings into actionable design guidelines through a step-by-step submission form.
