The goal was to examine cognitive and navigational skills using two organization methods. Over 200 children aged 4-6 were assessed using an iPad (half used a taxonomic layout, half a schematic layout). Results revealed important information regarding cognitive skills and their relationship with organizational methods used to program devices.

This session is rated "Intermediate" which assumes general familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.
