This paper reports on a research project conducted in Victoria, Australia, to connect 7 – 12 year old hospitalised children with their school using a specially designed Presence App. The trial of the App demonstrated that technological mediated communication can meet the needs of children in hospital for social connection to their classroom. It also showed advantages over technology such as videoconferencing and email in creating an on-going classroom presence for the hospitalised child while respecting privacy and attempting to minimise disruption in the hospital and classroom settings.
