The paper, Going Deep: Supporting Collaborative Exploration of Evolution in Natural History Museums, a product of the NSF AISL project Life on Earth, was chosen as the Best Design Paper at the 10th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning this past June in Madison, Wisconsin. The authors provide an analysis of pairs of children interacting with a multi-touch tabletop exhibit designed to help museum visitors learn about evolution and the tree of life.
