**** Next Generation of HCI and Education ****

*** CHI 2010 Workshop on UI Technologies and Educational Pedagogy ***

Given the exponential growth of interactive whiteboards in classrooms
around the world, there has been a need to explore how next generation
HCI will impact education in the future. Educators are depending on
the interaction communities to deliver technologies that will
improve/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

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
    * Mobile Devices, response systems (clickers)
    * Tangible, VR, AR & MR, Multimodal interfaces
    * Console gaming, 3D input devices
    * Co-located interaction, presentations
    * Educational Pedagogy, learner-centric
    * Empirical methods, case studies
    * Multi-display interaction

Submission:  The deadline for workshop paper submissions is January
6th, 2010. Interested researchers should submit a 4-page position
paper in the ACM CHI Extended Abstract Format to edwardtse [at] Acceptance notifications were sent out March 15, 2010.
The workshop will be held April 11, 2010 in Atlanta, USA. 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 2010 conference.
