In this paper we describe research in which we have used sound as part of a mobile multimedia learning experience for children. In this work we have classified sound clips into categories that appear to have differing effectiveness. We have also observed unexpected behaviour by the children indicating that our devices are capable of further development. We propose further research using sound to explore the contribution to learning of environment, content type and interaction mode.
