Abstract

© 2018 Copyright is held by the owner/author(s). Learner-Computer Interaction (LCI) research addresses the design, development and use of interactive technologies to support and amplify human learning. LCI is based on the rationale that learning while interacting with technology is a complex, multi-layered phenomenon, thus, designing the conditions for engaging in meaningful learning is vital in the 21st century, yet, it remains a challenging process. LCI developments are expected to contribute towards a coherent new, high-impact way of understanding and building learner-centered interaction concepts to support the design of future learning environments. LCI provides an interdisciplinary playground for researchers and professionals across all areas of learning technologies, psychology, learning science and human-computer interaction (HCI), with an ultimate objective of providing a forum at the intersection of these topical areas. LCI aims to develop a critical discussion, debate and co-development of ideas and approaches about the next generation of learning environments and their interaction design capacities, the form of these capacities and the way they can be identified, utilized and enhanced to help us improve the contemporary learning technologies and users' learning experience.
