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 education.

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:


  1. Gestural input, multitouch, large displays

  2. Mobile Devices, response systems (clickers)

  3. Tangible, VR, AR & MR, Multimodal interfaces

  4. Console gaming, 3D input devices

  5. Co-located interaction, presentations

  6. Educational Pedagogy, learner-centric

  7. Empirical methods, case studies

  8. Multi-display interaction
