          Abstract

          Most of the current educational mobile apps for children are developed from the perspectives of developed countries. Due to this, many times parents from the developing/underdeveloped countries do not consider these apps fit to their socio-cultural norms. Targeting this concern, we involved the kids, their parents, and their teachers from South of Jordan region in the requirements gathering and the design phases of an educational mobile app. This mobile app would educate and entertain kids through stories while keeping the social-cultural norms of the region. In this work, we present the requirements gathering and the design phase. Further, we provide details of a design evaluation study that we conducted with ten kids at a public school from South of Jordan region to get their feedbacks on our created design and the stories.
