Teen Computer Interaction is concerned with the design, evaluation and implementation of technologies for teenagers and with the study of major phenomena surrounding them. It aims to give special consideration to the unique development issues and diversity of this particular user group.
Teenagers are possibly the most diverse, dynamic and technologically-aware user group. Working with teenagers can enable researchers to gather valuable insights and opportunities to inform the design and implementation of new technologies. Researchers have now begun to acknowledge that Teen Computer Interaction is a specialised area of HCI and this book brings together some of the best work in this field to-date. The book provides relevant HCI communities with an inclusive account of methods and examples of best practice to inform those working with teenagers in research and design projects. The chapters recount research with teenagers in many different domains and provide many different contributions to the field of Teen Computer Interaction including design methods, models, case studies and ethical considerations. The aim of this book is to provide a solid foundation from which the discipline of Teen Computer Interaction can grow, by providing a valuable resource for those wishing to conduct HCI research with teenagers.
Perspectives on HCI Research with Teenagers is aimed at academics, practitioners, designers, researchers and students who are interested in the new and emergent field of Teen Computer Interaction.
