Abstract

Young children have development characteristics that make the traditional desktop a less favorable choice for supporting parent-young child activities. However, they love to explore the world through touch, which makes multi-touch interactive tabletops good candidates for affording parent-young child interactions. Yet our understanding of designing tabletop applications to support parent-young child interactions is very limited. This paper reviews the related literature on the research topic, and presents the design implications of supporting parent-young child activities through a digital tabletop.
