Multi-touch interactive tables are vast becoming „must-have‟ items for enhancing the collaborative learning experience. There is extensive amount of literature promoting and highlighting the impact of collaborative learning around interactive tables towards learning, communication and social interaction. In this paper we present several of our existing work investigating the communication impact that emerges during collaborative peer learning activities around tabletop. It is also worth noting that we present findings of collaborative outcomes from two countries. Finally we highlight our interests and ideas that we hope will be addressed and discussed during the workshop in the light of shaping the future of multi-touch multiple surfaces for learning.
