TANGIBLE TOOLS FOR EDUCATION
2003-2005
A modular kit for learning and play. The kit has been developed using the I-BLOCKS techno-logy, a concept of building blocks which allows children to create and build toys and construc-tions that can react to environmental stimuli. I-BLOCKS is a modular technology enabling the dynamic creation of tangible tool for education. It emphasizes physicality of interaction through the use of spatial and kinaesthetic knowledge. The modular and combinatory qualities of the I-BLOCKS have been tested in different educational contexts to sustain learning as well as therapeutic sessions with children with cognitive impairments.
