The aim of our study is to discuss design issues from the perspective of two different types of cultures and reflect culturally sensitive issues based on a longitudinal study, which included empirical data from altogether over 3500 learners of grades 9 and 10. As a result we outline two focus areas: content and concept for best design practices. Furthermore, we argue that cross-cultural design of technology can help to identify culturally sensitive areas such as attitudes towards informal and collaborative learning and recognizing the local context for the content.
