This is the second edition of 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 can download an Adobe Acrobat version of the book for free from this website. The book will soon be available from amazon.com in paperback and hardcover format at very low prices (essentially, at cost). The content is the same.
