The research presented here documents and evaluates the redesign of the Internet-based services (reading, authoring, research), which include the ASb web site and Reading app for iOS and Android, to address these practical problems identified above and to make use of theoretical heuristics that not only underpin the design and use of the storybooks, but also the redesign of the reading, authoring and research services. Research associated with the ASb initiative often make use of sociocultural theory. For example, Treffry-Goatley (2016) argues that analytical tools offered by critical literacy would allow children to engage with the perspectives and positions presented in texts. In particular, such an approach includes affect, fantasy and play. Therefore, to create coherence between the theory that is used to research the use and design of storybooks that are part of ASb, it is appropriate to use Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) allied to Human-Computer Interactions (HCI) to design the tools to mediate the reading, authoring and research of these storybooks.
