Digital ink as a rich file format has shown promise as a text creation and text input modality. When used with children, who are emerging writers, studies have shown that the text can be recognized with a reasonable degree of accuracy but the possibilities for other uses of the ink, especially for diagnostic purposes has been understudied. This chapter sets out some of the possibilities for digital ink for writing with children and describes a study with children that sought insights from the children as to the possibilities of the media whilst also exploring the possibilities for a new method for the study of free writing text input with children. The chapter
presents a set of research challenges for the digital ink community.
