Tangibles for children, : the challenges
A significant proportion of research in the field of tangible interaction involves children. A common aspiration is to offer benefits through tangibility, related to ease of use and overall user experience while also support learning and developmental processes. However, evaluation results are often equivocal, and expectations of researchers not always verified. This workshop aims to attract researchers who approach this topic of tangibility and children from an empirical or design perspective. The purpose is to obtain a good picture of what benefits we expect tangibility to provide (including novel and future applications), establish what is the current empirical evidence to support such claims (or what is missing), and motivate appropriate evaluation methodologies for children. Keywords Tangible and embedded interaction, child-computer interaction, evaluation methods ACM Classification Keywords H.5.2.3 [User Interfaces]: Theory and Methods
