Boltman, A., Druin, A. (November 2001)
Children's Storytelling Technologies
An edited version was presented in the Proceedings of the American Educational Research Association.
HCIL-2001-25, CS-TR-4310, UMIACS-TR-2001-87

This study examined the elaboration and recall of children's stories through an analysis of the content and structure of children's retelling of a wordless picture book. The book was presented to 72 children (ages 6-7) in England and Sweden. Using a between subjects design, each child was presented with either a paper version of the picture book, a computer presentation with traditional hyperlinks, or a computer presentation with panning and zooming. The technology that was used was KidPad, a children's spatial storytelling application (Druin et al., 1997). Results revealed that the computer presentation with panning and zooming offered benefits in elaboration and recall by means of more complex story structure and a greater understanding of initiating events and goals.
