English This work in progress proposes a new approach for the design of personas representing children in preschool (aged 3-6 years old). Starting from the need to design technology for the collective use in the classroom, we looked at the group composed by the children and the teacher, the different possible ways teachers relate to children in a classroom context, and the way they work together towards a common goal. In this study, we analyse the dynamics of the group in relation to literacy-building activities and storytelling in school. Considering the inherent difficulty in interviewing children of preschool age, we decided to conduct interviews with teachers and experts and adopt a proxy approach to design of our personas. Using the data gathered from interviews and extracted from the literature regarding child-personas and adult-child reading, we start outlining a framework for the design of teacher-children collective personas in a formal educational context.
