The Meno project came up with a framework for narrative guidance and narrative construction in the context of non-adaptive systems. As part of the HOMEWORK project we are now trying to take this framework forward so that we can create adaptive systems that can help teachers and learners deliver a coherent experience across artifacts and contexts. In this paper we discuss how we are attempting to ensure that the framework that underpins the HOMEWORK project helps designers, teachers and learners to work together. We discuss the evolution of the current Non Linear Narrative Framework (NINF) and, in particular, our continuing work with teachers as we try to increase our understanding about how best to design to support them in their lesson planning activities. Our focus here is on extending the Meno framework for an adaptive system and extending it to other user groups in addition to learners.
