2018 ACM Interaction Design and Children (IDC <>)

Given the enormous potential of tangible interfaces for involving children
in co-creation practices, this workshop aims at analysing and reflecting on
the possibilities afforded by TUIs to support co-creation processes not
only during the design phase of the technology but extending the creative
process into the ‘use time’.

We invite researchers working on tangible interfaces, child-computer
interaction, and interaction designers to join us at the 2018 ACM
Interaction Design and Children (IDC) Conference  to critically reflect on
these aspects.

Submission of contributions: 15 April
Notification of acceptance: 26 April
Workshop: 19 June

***How to join the workshop *
We solicit participants to submit a paper in ACM Sigchi Extended Abstract
format (2-4 pages) describing their interest on co-creation and their
experience in any aspect related to co-creation in the context of tangible
interfaces for children (e.g. co-design, creativity in building and playing
with tangibles,...). We encourage participants to submit work in the form
of demos or videos, accompanied by a description and its relationship with
co-creation according to their own view. The workshop will consist of
presentations to discuss and create common ground and ideation tasks
combining backgrounds in working groups.

*** About the Workshop*
Invited speaker: Kreg Hanning (LifeLong Kindergarten group, MIT MEDIA LAB

Kreg's work centers on the development of new tools and activities to
promote physical tinkering—that is, new ways to engage children in creative
explorations through physical construction. As a member of the Scratch
Team, Kreg has developed many Scratch extensions, enabling children to use
Scratch for controlling hardware devices, accessing online data, and
connecting with web services. Through Scratch extensions, Kreg hopes to
provide children with new opportunities to think about, and interact with,
the world around them.
