Abstract

This paper is about assessing how and under which conditions digital technology interactions and activities can enhance socio-cognitive abilities in children. We address this issue through a comparison between canonical and digital-based narrative activities in a formal educational setting. The paper is based upon a case study carried on in a primary school in Lugano (CH), where children develop educational narratives in both traditional and digital-assisted formats. Three are the main issues addressed: Valorization and enhancement of different capabilities, Socialization and attitude change, Pupils collaboration strategies. Copyright 2010 ACM.
