Abstract

We describe an information terminal that supports interactive search with an age-adaptable search user interface whose main focus group are young users. The terminal enables a flexible adaptation of the search user interface to address changing requirements of users at different age groups. The interface is operated using touch interactions as they are considered to be more natural for children than using a mouse. Users search within a safe environment; For this purpose a search index was created using a focused crawler.
