Universal Interactions for Children

Speaker:  Juan Pablo Hourcade – Iowa City, IA, United States
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


Computer literacy and access are increasingly critical to satisfy basic needs and rights (e.g., education, participation in a democracy, transportation, purchases). This means computer software and hardware designers must ensure accessibility for increasingly diverse populations and computing devices. This talk outlines challenges and opportunities in design to achieve that goal, focusing on the principles of deeply engaging with stakeholders, working in interdisciplinary teams, personalizing technology, and making it practical for people’s reality. Hourcade will illustrate these principles by discussing research projects on technologies to support children’s creativity, collaboration, and information access.
