Hi Steven, as we all know, it’s quite difficult to conduct face-to-face interview with children. However, the adoption of smatphones may change this especially for those children who are 10 years and above. There is a recent study by the Municipality of Copenhagen to study the eating habits of children using mobile and online methods. You can take a look at our blog report here: http://www.merlien.org/news/juliegade.html
For those interested in leveraging mobile technologies for enhancing research, you can join our conference on the 2-3 Dec 2010 in Berlin: http://www.merlien.org/upcoming-events/mrmw2010.html10th February 2010 at 11:15 pm #5182

I may be able to give you some examples of papers on how to report qualitative research findings using software. We have a couple of papers from our CARQ2008 and CAQR2009 workshops that deal with this issue. Drop me a mail and I’ll point you to the right direction.
