The goal of this Workshop is to bring together designers, educators,
industry professionals, and researchers who are interested in designing
and building mobile educational applications for children, with a
particular focus on mobile touch interface challenges and solutions.
The workshop will include brief presentations and demos by participants,
and focused discussions around some key issues, such as:

--What are the different types of interface options available for mobile
technology and what is their relevance to education?
--Do the advantages of portability outweigh the inherent limitations of
small screens?
--What does existing research tells us about mobility, interactivity and
learning?

The goal is for this to be a highly participatory and collaborative
Workshop, with all participants sharing questions, thoughts and ideas.
