Cognition, Communication and Interaction: Transdisciplinary Perspectives on Interactive Technology (Human-Computer Interaction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cognition, Communication and Interaction examines the theoretical and methodological research issues that underlie the design and use of interactive technology. Present interactive designs are addressing the multi-modality of human interaction and the multi-sensory dimension of how we engage with each other. This book aims to provide a trans-disciplinary research framework and methodology for interaction design. The analysis directs attention to three human capacities that our engagement with interactive technology has made salient and open to constant redefinition. These capacities are human cognition, communication and interaction. In this book examination of these capacities is embedded in understanding the following foundations for design: concepts of 'communication and interaction' and their application (Part 1) conceptions of 'knowledge and cognition' (Part 2) the role of aesthetics and ethics in design (Part 3). This book brings together work by researchers and practitioners from a wide range of discourses that are pertinent to understanding the boundaries and possibilities produced by the intervention of interactive technology in all spheres of human social life. These practitioners come from philosophy, human-centred design, interactive art, participatory design, computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), human-computer interaction (HCI), dance, opera, theatre, interactive multi-modal design, cognitive technology, knowledge management, ambient interactive design, immersive and responsive technology, presence research, communications, linguistics, social science, psychology, engineering and computer science. This book will be of interest to researchers, practitioner and designers from all of these domains, as well as providing a comprehensive research text for research students in these areas.
