Child Computer Interaction: 2nd Workshop on UI Technologies and
Educational Pedagogy
in conjunction with CHI 2011, Vancouver
May 7th or May 8th 2011

Given the emergence of Child Computer Interaction and the ubiquitous
application of interactive technology as an educational tool, there is
a need to explore how next generation HCI will impact education in the
future. Educators are depending on the interaction communities and to
deliver technologies that will improve and adapt learning to an ever-
changing world. In addition to novel UI concepts, the HCI community
needs to examine how these concepts can be matched to contemporary
paradigms in educational pedagogy. The classroom is a challenging
environment for evaluation, thus new techniques need to be established
to prove the value of new HCI interactions in the educational space.
This workshop provides a forum to discuss key HCI issues facing next
generation education.

We invite authors to present position papers about potential design
challenges and perspectives on how the community should handle the
next generation of HCI in education. Topics of interest include:

*   Gestural input, multitouch, large displays, multi-display
interaction, response systems
*   Mobile Devices/mobile & pervasive learning
*   Tangible, VR, AR & MR, Multimodal interfaces, universal design,
*   Console gaming, 3D input devices, 3D displays
*   Co-located interaction, presentations, tele-presence, interactive video
*   Child Computer Interaction, Educational Pedagogy, learner-centric,
adaptive “smart” applications,
*   Empirical methods, case studies, linking of HCI research with
educational research methodology
*   Usable systems to support learning and teaching: Ecology of
learning, any where, anytime, (UX of cloud computing to support
 teaching and learning)

The deadline for workshop paper submissions is January 14, 2011.
Interested researchers should submit a 4-page position paper in the
ACM CHI adjunct proceedings style to the workshop management system.
Acceptance notifications will be sent out February 20, 2011. The
workshop will be held May 7 or May 8, 2011 in Vancouver, Canada.
Please note that at least one author of an accepted position paper
must register for the workshop and for one or more days of the CHI
2011 conference.

The best 3 papers will be pre accepted for a upcoming for a theme
issue of the Springer
journal Personal and Ubiquitous Computing on “Child Computer Interaction”.
Other authors are also invite to submit/ resubmit their work.
We will send a separate call for paper for this special issue soon.
