In our project, we are developing a system that facilitates the hospitalized children with chronic illness to narrate and share their stories. In this system, children aged K-6th grade can create their own and co-construct narratives with peers and bedside teachers in a multi-user environment. The MNS system incorporates features of synchronous and asynchronous communications that afford various kinds of narrating experiences. The effectiveness of MNS system will be evaluated by an experiment.
