Abstract

A software development collaboration project designed to maximize the skill sets and interests of school children and teachers, educational software technologists and researchers, and college undergraduates is presented. The work brings elementary school children with college seniors and technology consultants to implement a problem-solving methodology within a collaborative environment to design, develop, and implement a multimedia software application that enhances time and space orientation abilities of children and puts the programming, interface design, and multimedia systems capabilities of college students into action. This project-based learning offers students the opportunity to learn mapping skills, problem-solving techniques, and participatory design while planning and conducting virtual tours of their city.
