The Children’s code is a transformative code of practice that aims to better protect children’s privacy online. One in five people who use the internet is a child but the internet was never designed with them in mind. Interaction designers have a critical role to play in designing experiences that place young people’s needs at the centre.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has created design guidance and practical tools to help designers create interactions with children’s privacy in mind. In this video Georgina Bourke shares an overview of the new guidance with the community ahead of running a workshop to test some of the tools that have been developed to help designers create safer experiences for children in the digital world. We haven’t recorded the workshop, but we have included some Q&A after her overview talk.
