With the growth of the Internet and the prevalence of mobile devices, we can see changes in the ways that people are learning and interacting with one another. Children are growing up and using technology from an early age. Adults from around the world are using the Internet to communicate and collaborate with each other. There is a lot of potential to use technology as a way of promoting cultural acceptance and bringing people together. In this lunchtime lecture we will be discussing three strands of research at UCL where culture plays a prominent theme.
Each speaker will describe what attracted them to their research and why they think it is important to try to design and engage with people from different backgrounds in their research. They will also be discussing some of the difficulties when designing for different cultures. At the end of the lunchtime lecture there will be an opportunity for Q&A.
