What Children Can Teach Us
Dr. Allison Druin, University of Maryland, USA

Allison Druin is the Director of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) and an Associate Professor in the University of Maryland's College of Information Studies. She leads interdisciplinary research teams of librarians, educational researchers, computer scientists, artists, classroom teachers and children to create new educational technologies for elementary school children. Her work has included: developing digital libraries for children; designing technologies for families; and creating collaborative storytelling technologies for the classroom. Dr. Druin's most widely used work is the "International Children's Digital Library" (ICDL) www.childrenslibrary.org, now the largest digital library in the world for children and a non-profit foundation, the ICDL Foundation. For the past three years she has been a Commissioner on the U.S. National Commission on Libraries and Information Science, appointed by the White House and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. She is the author or editor of three books: Designing Multimedia Environments for Children (Wiley, 1996), The Design of Children's Technology (Morgan Kaufmann, 1999) and Robots for Kids (Morgan Kaufmann, 2000). She received her Ph.D. in 1997 from the University of New Mexico, her M.S. in 1987 from the MIT Media Lab, and a B.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design in 1985.
