KidPad: A collaborative storytelling environment for children

Narratives are ubiquitous. Some argue that the fundamental element in life is the story and storytelling can be viewed as a framework for almost all communication. As such, storytelling can also be used as an approach to learning. Within our recently launched KidStory research project (in a collaboration with the European Union), storytelling is the focus for a set of tools and collaboration principles that we are developing. The technology tools we have come to see as important support co-present collaboration for children. This technique we call Single Display Groupware, where children can work together at the same computer as partners in creating a shared story. Our goal is to develop tools that will enhance children's communication skills, expressive storytelling capabilities, and collaboration experiences.
