PUBLICATIONS: Child-Computer Interaction by Juan Pablo Hourcade
This is the first comprehensive book on child-computer interaction, covering basic concepts as well as the latest research.
The book is ideal for graduate students entering the field, as well as for practitioners and researchers coming from other fields who want to quickly catch up with child-computer interaction research. It can also be a useful book for teaching courses on child-computer interaction.
The book is also a bit of an experiment in that it is self-published and freely available. The goal is to enable more people to access it. The hope is that this arrangement will also make it easier to make frequent updates to the book, making new versions available online.
You candownloadan Adobe Acrobat version of the book for free from this website. The book will soon also be available in print and Kindle format at amazon.com. The content is exactly the same.
