CALL FOR PAPERS
Second International Workshop on Interactive e-Books for Children
June 17, 2014 - Aarhus, Denmark
http://idc2014-ebooks.fbk.eu/

In conjunction with Interaction Design and Children - IDC 2014
http://idc2014.org/ 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GOALS
Starting from the results achieved at the first successful edition, the aim of this full-day workshop is to further investigate, also through experimental sessions and group working, how to design interactive e-books for children in order to create effective and engaging tools for increasing the achievement of educational and cognitive benefits. In particular, this second edition focuses on e-learning by means of e-books thought as educational tools to be used in classroom in the digital schools of the next future. The design of e-books for children with special needs will be also considered.

Once again, we would like to bring together researchers from a wide range of disciplines - HCI designers, computer scientists, technologists, linguists, pedagogists, psychologists, graphic designers, editors - who work in interactive e-books for children or are interested in exploring the challenges of this domain. 

This edition of the workshop is an attempt to cement this emerging community, while extending it also to teachers and educators that will use e-books at schools and need effective tools.

TOPICS
Papers are solicited dealing with design and implementation of e-books for children, as well as methodology, field study and evaluation. They should be related but not limited to the following topics:
-	designing effective learning e-books
-	designing for the abilities of children with special needs
-	designing of gamification for learning
-	e-books as school textbooks and complementary tools to other technologies
-	individualizing approaches and other methods to address individual differences
-	applying theories to design and evaluation
-	best practices
-	evaluation and impact assessment
-	complying with regulations, guidelines and standards
