BrothersoftEditor: Introduction
KidPad is a collaborative story authoring tool for children. It provides basic drawing functionality on a zooming canvas enabled by Jazz. The narrative structure of a story is defined by creating spatial hyperlinks between objects on the canvas. Instead of using a standard Wimp (Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointer) user interface, KidPad uses local tools that can be picked up, used and dropped anywhere on the drawing surface. The local tools interface and mid, a Java Library developed at the University of Maryland, allows KidPad to support shoulder-to-shoulder collaboration. If multiple USB mice are connected to the computer each mouse will control a tool in KidPad, making it possible to let several children simultaneously create a story together!

One goal of KidPad is to enable children to create non-linear stories to ExPress their thoughts visually, in a more natural way than linear storytelling allows. KidPad supports collaboration between children because it can be used with multiple mice on the same computer. Certain tools in KidPad encourage collaboration because they enable two children to perform a task that they would be Unable to perform alone. For example, if a child wants to draw in orange she must work with another child. There is no orange crayon but if the red and yellow crayons are put together the colors mix and two mice can draw in orange.
