Abstract: Several studies have shown the importance of parental involvement in learning and development of kindergarten children, but also mention existing barriers, such as lack of time. The proliferation of access to the Internet and use of web tools can facilitate communication between parents and educators, reduce barriers and promote parental involvement and participation in children’s learning. The study carried out is a design-based research, which aims to develop a multimedia platform that promotes communication and information sharing among educators, parents and children, facilitating parental involvement in learning. The design-based research methodology understands the development of products in iterative cycles of analysis, technological development, testing and evaluation with users, evolving towards an increasingly robust intervention. This paper presents the results of preliminary studies, the first cycle of development of the platform, composed of functional specificat ions, paper prototype and usability tests, ending with an introduction to the second cycle of development. This is the current development phase, consisting of a functional prototype, which is in use for evaluation by users in four kindergartens. (More)
