#HCIed 2020

HCI and the Educational Technology Revolution @ AVI

We invite you to attend the third edition of this workshop, to be held at the ACM International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI 2020) which will take place at the historic hotel Regina Isabella, in the charming village of Lacco Ameno d’Ischia, Italy. Ischia is the largest island in the Gulf of Naples and it is easily connected to the city of Naples.

The HCI Educators series has studied many challenges for the teaching and learning of Human-Computer Interaction at a time of radical educational change. The #HCIed workshop has been a safe haven for practitioners to discuss these challenges and opportunities, be it the emergence of MOOCs in the early-to-mid-2010s (in HCIed 2016), or the proliferation of video and flipped classrooms in more recent years (in HCIed 2018).

In this edition of the workshop we turn our attention to emergent technologies which are being incorporated into education in its broadest sense.

COVID-19 UPDATE: The parent conference, AVI has issued a new statement. Therefore, we have amended our important dates but are still assessing the feasibility of remote participation.


We now ask the community to contribute to a discussion on how can emergent technologies be used to develop skills and foster creativity, ranging from the experiential (i.e. anecdotal evidence) to the theoretical (including proposals to curriculum change).

For example:

  • Virtual Reality (VR) uses in education.
  • Augmented Realities (AR) in education and visualisation.
  • Mixed Realities (MR) applications for formal and informal education.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)... and more.
