Child Computer Interaction Group (ChiCI)

Future Digital Technology (FDTI)

This internationally known group is the largest group of its kind in the world.

The Child Computer Interaction group (ChiCI group) has attracted funding from national and regional schemes and from the European Commission (as FP7 and LLLP) and RCUK (via EPSRC). Since its inception in 2003, the ChiCI group has managed seven successful PhD completions, has completed five externally funded projects and has hosted two international conferences.

Previous funded projects included BEAM (Broadband Enabled Activities for Museums), which focused on the integration of digital technologies into real museum visits, and UMSIC (Usability of Music for Social Inclusion for Children) that investigated the use of mobile technologies and music creation in classroom environments.
