New information technologies are giving rise to
new possibilities in education even for the youngest. The
use of innovative methods in education has the potential
not only to improve education, but to generate interest in
various areas, and to motivate children to learn better
since they use multiple sensory modalities. The concept of
tangible user interface (TUI) seems the ideal solution for
preschool children. This paper presents the development
and evaluation of an interactive educational game that
uses tangible user interface. The application allows
children to learn the characteristics and differences
between animals, on a simple and easy way. They are able
to manipulate the digital information by selecting and
positioning physical object, representing the various
animals. Developed application is augmented with the QR
codes which enable the system to detect selected animal.
The developed interactive educational game was evaluated
with children in one kindergarten, and the results are
presented in this article.
