MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes, ReacTickles Global, an exploratory project that will investigate the potential of mobile and Internet technologies to encourage creativity and social interaction for young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. The paper will draw upon the experiences and outcomes of the Reactive Colours project, which developed on the basis of a flexible and agile design methodology that included the ideas and experiences of the target population at all stages. The broad aim of ReacTickles Global is to explore how the inherent connectivity of mobile and web technologies can be exploited to encourage playfulness and self-expression, and to evaluate the impact of this on learning that is both socially constructed and collaborative.
