Abstract

The Internet plays an important role in people's daily lives. This is not only true for adults, but also holds for children; however, current web search engines are designed with adult users and their cognitive abilities in mind. Consequently, children face considerable barriers when using these information systems. In this work, we demonstrate the use of query assistance and search moderation techniques as well as appropriate interface design to overcome or mitigate these challenges.
