Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to participate in the half-day workshop  “Co-designing with Mixed-ability Groups of Children to Promote Inclusive Education
at the Interaction Design for Children Conference (IDC, 2022), to explore how to co-design technology in inclusive classrooms where children have diverse sensory, motor, cognitive or behavioral abilities.


  1. explore and define the barriers, limitations and opportunities in applying co-design approaches for and with children with mixed abilities,
  2. explore co-design techniques and strategies to promote inclusion and collaboration among children.

We invite participants to write short papers of 3-4 pages (excluding references) as positions papers, initial studies, or case studies, covering one of the following topics: (1) Co-design and PD approaches with children; (2) Inclusive education, and (3) Design for inclusion.

To broaden our audience to enable a more trans-disciplinary debate and discussion, we invite participants with diverse backgrounds such as educators or parents to participate as well. We will require a brief statement expressing their interest and motivation in participating in the workshop.
