Keywords:Mobile Application, user-centered design, children education
Indonesia is a country with a variety of regional languages that characterize the nation. Every region in Indonesia has its local language and with its dialect and is characteristic of the region. Regional languages have become a long-established identity. Unknowingly, Indonesia is experiencing an increasingly rapid cultural change in which young genes are already in a condition where many require them not to use their local language. Also, data collected by UNESCO shows that there are approximately 30 regional languages that are endangered and, on average, are in eastern Indonesia. Facing the existing problems, this study aims to help young people to get to know their local languages through mobile applications. The local language used as research is the “lamaholot” language, which is one of the native languages of the people of East Flores Regency and uses the user-centered design method. The design will be tailored to the user so that it can be more attractive and according to user needs. Respondents were taken as many as 147 children with an average age between 10 years to 14 years who are people in East Flores Regency.
