Interactive narrative was, until a couple of years ago, more a topic of discussion in ACM Multimedia than in the CH/ community. And where children were concerned, the issue was mostly how to make storybooks for children more interactive by adding sound, animation, etc. More recently, however, both narrative and interfaces for children have received significant attention. The two concerns join in the topic of how to create storytelling spaces to support children's own storytelling voice. Until now, nevertheless, there has been no comprehensive discussion at CHI of what it means to design for children to produce narrative in the context of technology. This panel, then, gathers researchers with a diverse set of perspectives to discuss what it means to support children as producers of tales.
