      Multi-touch interactive systems are being increasingly exploited in the last few years for learning purposes, since they are able to foster collaboration in children. However, there are other factors that need special attention when trying to engage children in a collaborative process, like level of fun and simplicity of tools provided, for instance. This paper describes the design, implementation and evaluation of ChiCo, a platform aiming at supporting children in a co-design process.
