For two years now I have been a PhD student with the OutsideTheBox project, in which we co-design technologies with autistic children. Our prototypes are supposed to make sense in the children’s lives and enable them to share the positive experiences they make with the technologies. My PhD work focuses on the experiences the children have with their technologies.
To that effect, I’m developing an evaluation tool that allows for critical reflection and purposefully includes the direct perspectives from autistic children. It is based on Actor-Network Theory and Critical Discourse Analysis.
