CHI 2013 Workshop: Methods of Working with Teenagers in Interaction Design

I’m one of the organisers of the Methods of Working with Teenagers in Interaction Design workshop which will be at CHI 2013 in Paris, this builds on some of the discussions from our workshop at NordiChi this year and should be another excellent event. You can find the the call and submission link here, for any further info just e-mail me or any of the other of the organisers, from the workshop we’re planning a special issue of the International Journal of Child Computer Interaction. Full workshop blurb: Teenagers are a unique but little studied user group within the field of Interaction Design. Current literature on methodologies for research with children predominantly focuses on working with younger age groups and leaves a distinct gap between this and research methodologies used with adults. The aim of the workshop is to bridge this gap by bringing together practitioners and academics that have developed and used novel methods for carrying out research with teenagers in the interactions design area. The workshop will also refine and develop existing methods, create new methods, foster new collaborations, and define new research agendas to grow the research and literature in this area.
