The Workshop of Learner Computer Interaction (LCI) aims to provide an interdisciplinary playground for researchers and professionals across all areas of learning technologies and human-computer interaction (HCI). The main objective is to build a forum around the intersection of these topical areas. Participants from a variety of organisations are invited: learning science, learning analytics, educational psychology, educational data, and researchers in interaction, design and digital literacy. LCI aims to develop a critical discussion, debate and co-development of ideas and approaches about the next generation of learning environments and their interaction design capacities; the form of these capacities and the way they can be identified, utilised and enhanced in order to help us improve the contemporary learning technologies and users’ learning experience. LCI research addressing the design, development and use of interactive technologies to support and amplify human learning and cognition.
To explore the future of technologies for teaching and learning, we aim to build a research community around this topical area,to brainstorm about what the next generation of learning environments might look like, novel LCI concepts, what kind of learner-generated data can be collected, and how these data can help us to better understand and improve learning experience. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to the intersection of learning technologies and HCI:
• design issues for learning tools
• mobile-based (tablet, smart-phone) learning
• participatory design
• user modeling, adaptation and personalisation
• usability and interaction design
• interaction design cases that demonstrate novel and well-designed technologies
• evaluation studies of new and emerging technologies
• studies discussing the involvement of students and teachers in the design process
• future vision articles, discussing trends and directions for the field
