Abstract

Within Child Computer Interaction (CCI), there is an emphasis on empowering children through co-design and co-creation of technology that shapes their learning, inside and outside the classroom, their wellbeing and lifestyles, and everyday experiences. However, the focus has primarily been on now or the near future, with limited work on designing children’s future technological life worlds.

This workshop takes a strategic approach towards “designing for the future,” this year’s conference theme, by reflecting on the past, discussing current trends, and exploring the future. We will further build on critical and/or future-oriented methods such as critical design, speculative design, design fictions, and others. Together with researchers in CCI, in this workshop we will compile a methodological toolbox for the future of IDC; one that enables us to inquire, design, and critically examine children’s technological futures together with them.
