In this paper, we describe the process of cooperatively designing, prototyping and evaluating Aago, a mobile tool for creating and sharing media narratives among teenagers engaged in community-based participatory media programs. Aago supports capture, annotation and sharing of audio-visual media as story threads through a simplified mobile interface. Pilot user evaluations demonstrate the challenges and potential for individual and cooperative media making in several learning and design contexts.
