Problem Definition: Technology is fundamental in human life in various areas, especially education. In recent years, due to the growth of technology and capabilities in digital media, cyberspace has become the most widely used media among children. Therefore, the designers' attention to selecting visual elements appropriate to the physical and perceptual features of children and creating a distinction in the design for children and adults reduces the visual pressure of inappropriate design for children and strengthens children's perceptions as well as their level of interaction with the new media.
Objective: The aim is to identify visual elements appropriate to children's perception in designing educational applications for 6- and 7-year-old children.
Research Method: The dominant method in this research is synthetic-analytic. Visual elements tailored to the perceptions of 6- and 7-year-old children have been extracted through online search and library studies. These elements were discovered and extracted as leading indicators in 80 Iranian and non-Iranian applications. According to their implementation in the studied applications, those elements appropriate to children's visual perception have been introduced.
Results: The investigation results showed that the applied visual elements are appropriate for children's visual perception. Visual qualities are used to create peace of mind and mental readiness to understand educational concepts. In organizing the applications, visual stress has been avoided, which is consistent with the perceptual characteristics of children.
