This research examines phonics instruction on multi-touch display technology for collaborative learning. The paper provides a brief discussion of technology, collaborative learning and literacy instruction and then focuses on the design of a Phonics application using collaborative learning interactions. The paper discusses the methodology of a multi-phase evaluation of the usability and the instructional design of the application. A survey was used for the usability study and a focus group consisting of experts in the field of literacy was used to gather data on instructional effectiveness. The major findings of the research are explored, followed by the conclusions and further research opportunities arising from the study.
