CFP: Theme Issue on Child Computer Interaction
in Journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing

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
everchanging 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.

In the last two years two workshops in conjunction with CHI provided a
forum to discuss key HCI issues facing next generation education. The
aim of this special issue to summarize the potential design challenges
and perspectives on how the community should handle the next
generation of HCI in education.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Gestural input, multitouch, large displays, multi-display
interaction, response systems, classroom depth sensing, tablets and
touch tables,
- Mobile Devices/mobile & pervasive learning
- Tangible, VR, AR & MR, Multimodal interfaces, universal design, accessibility
- 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)

As stated above the issue is linked to the 2010 and 2011 workshops on
Child Computer Interaction. Both workshops were organized in
conjunction with CHI and their webpages can be found at:
