Technology is pervasive in family life. Family-centered design can enable the creation of technological solutions that align with the diverse needs of, and dynamics within, families. Yet, designing meaningful interactive technologies that are useful for and desired by families still remains a complex and evolving challenge.
There are limited resources in the HCI community examining theoretical and methodological processes for designing and testing technology that supports and enhances family life. With this workshop we aim to take a step towards collaboratively developing comprehensive resources, toolkits, and best practice guidelines tailored to family-centered design in HCI.
