Tse, Edward, Schoning, Johannes, Huber, Jochen, Marentette, Lynn, Beckwith, Richard, Rogers, Yvonne and Mhlhuser, Max (2011): Child computer interaction: workshop on UI technologies and educational pedagogy. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 2445-2448.

Given the growth of Child Computer Interaction research, next generation HCI technologies play an important role in the future of education. Educators rely on technology to improve and adapt learning to the pedagogical needs of learners. Hence, this community needs to understand how current technology concepts match with current pedagogical paradigms. The classroom is a high stakes environment for experimentation, thus new interaction techniques need to be validated to prove their pedagogical value in the educational setting. This workshop provides a forum to discuss key HCI issues facing next generation education. With a particular focus on child computer interaction, these issues comprise inter alia the interaction with whole class interactive whiteboards, small group interactive multi-touch tables, and individual personal response systems (e.g. mobile devices) in the classroom.

Hirsch, Tad, Sengers, Phoebe, Blevis, Eli, Beckwith, Richard and Parikh, Tapan (2010): Making food, producing sustainability. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 3147-3150.

Many contemporary approaches to environmental sustainability focus on the end-consumer. In this panel, we explore lessons from small food producers for future development of HCI as an agency of sustainable ways of being. We argue that attention to the relationship small producers have to the environment and their experiences of interrelations between environmental, economic, and social sustainability suggest new foundational issues for sustainable HCI research.

Blankinship, Erik and Beckwith, Richard (2001): Tools for expressive text-to-speech markup. In: Marks, Joe and Mynatt, Elizabeth D. (eds.) Proceedings of the 14th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 11 - 14, 2001, Orlando, Florida. pp. 159-160.

This paper describes handicapped accessible text-to-speech markup software developed for poetry and performance. Most text-to-speech software allows the user to select a voice, but provides no control over performance parameters such as rate, volume, and pitch. For users with vocal disabilities, the default "computer voice" is often dreaded since it provides no personalization. Evolving standards exist for text-to-speech markup (Sable, Java Speech Markup Language, Spoken Text Markup Language), but few tools exist for non-experts to modify documents using these prosody options [1, 5]. Furthermore, we could find fewer tools allowing for straightforward live performance using a synthesized voice [3]. Thus we created an easy to learn text-to-speech markup tool that requires little training to use.
