At IDC this year over 8 workshops were conducted at The New School and Sesame Workshop, prior to the start of the formal conference on Monday, June 24, 2013.
Workshops were an opportunity for participants to have focused discussions, exchange ideas in an informal setting, and forge potential collaborations around topics of interest within the IDC community. Some key themes in workshops this year included: Digital Fabrication and Making, Evaluating Accessibility and Designing for Children with Special Needs, Technology, Media and Design among Teens, Interactive e-Books, and Technologies to Enhance Children's Creativity.
Outcomes of workshops included summarized reports or posters to disseminate findings and support future research in these areas. The workshops program at IDC 2013 was a huge success and we hope will drive new insights and collaborations going forward. Learn more: idc2013.org/program/
