Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, a division of Elsevier

Morgan Kaufmann announces the release of a landmark book on human-computer interaction for children. Allison Druin, a widely acclaimed researcher in children and emerging technologies, draws on the expertise of 43 leading academics, designers and policy makers from nine countries whose affiliations include UNICEF, One Laptop Per Child, Intel and Sesame Workshop and LeapFrog Enterprises.

This book includes critical long-range vision, practical, how-to case studies and on-the-ground global research.

* Overview of existing research with a worldwide scope
* Field-tested educational possibilities for mobile devices
* Important commercial considerations
* Overview of design methods
* Case studies of using mobile phones for reading and storytelling
* Hardware design considerations
* A look at the future of mobile technologies and children

Each chapter ends with a summary of lessons learned so that designers, educators, and researchers can take away the salient points for further discussion or investigation. The book points out pitfalls, unintended consequences, and shortcomings of existing educational techniques using mobile technologies.

Allison Druin is the Director of the HCI Lab and an Associate Professor in the University of Maryland's College of Information Studies and Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. Her most active research is the International Children's Digital Library(ICDL), now the largest digital library in the world for children. She is the author of Designing Multimedia Environments for Children, The Design of Children's Technology and Robots for Kids.

Morgan Kaufmann publishes trusted, leading-edge, Scientific and Technical information-pushing the frontier and fueling a continuous cycle of exploration, discovery and application.
