Methods for Working with Teenagers in Interaction Design

Special Edition of the International Journal of Child Computer Interaction

Call for Papers

Teenagers are a unique, but little studied, user group in Interaction Design. Current literature on methodologies for research with children predominantly focuses on young age groups, leaving a gap between work with child users and work with adult users. The aim of this special edition is to bring together high quality original work that considers methods used in, and created for, research with teenagers in the area of Interaction Design.  Contributions can be research papers or case studies.


We are inviting contributions in the following areas:

  • Explorations and evaluations of adaptions made to existing methods developed for use with children or adults,
  • New methods that have been tested with teenage participants,
  • Methods for engaging with teenagers in a variety of contexts,
  • Studies and cases where research with teenagers has thrown new insights into how to work with this group effectively,
  • Theory on teenagers and their engagement in the design of technology.
