Abstract: The Internet had created new sets of problems to many people today who suffered from information overload, a problem that taxonomies could alleviate. Yet, the development of taxonomies needed to consider factors such as subject domain and its users. Since users were important stakeholders that decided the usability and usefulness of taxonomies, they had to play an active role in its design. Guidelines for developing taxonomies were readily available, but most of them pertained to adult users. When users were children, the situation became more complicated. Most current studies with children involved them as active participants in designing the graphical interface of websites, and there were fewer studies involving children in content organization of websites. This dissertation aimed to bridge the gap between the development of taxonomies and the involvement of children as technology design partners by applying the methodology of children-centered design on the development of taxonomies.
