Human-Computer Interaction and Education: Designing for Technology-Enhanced Learning Experiences

June Ahn, Tamara Clegg

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter provides an overview of how human-computer interaction (HCI) intersects with issues in the field of education. It explores how the process of design, which is a fundamental component of HCI work, has been conceptualized and used in the field of education. The chapter examines the question of theory and how different theoretical perspectives influence the design of learning technology. It highlights how perspectives in HCI mirror these juxtapositions as well, from studies that examine how people process and react to interface changes on the screen, to research that examines the social issues surrounding the use of technology in different contexts. The chapter argues that a key feature of HCI and education work is to marry design processes with relevant learning theories that can inform richer designs of learning technology.
