This book explores how technology can foster interaction between children and their peers, teachers and other adults. It covers in particular how technology can support children collaborate, so helping them to learn and engage positively with the world, in both work and play. It focuses on children, rather than young people, though the principles of supporting interaction mostly apply throughout all life stages. Chapters on classrooms and on autism explain principles behind using technology in ways that support, rather than obstruct, social interaction in diverse populations. Collaborative interaction involves both verbal and non-verbal behaviour and this book presents evidence from closely analysing children’s behaviour in natural settings. Examples from cutting-edge technology illustrate principles applying to more widely-available technology.
