Abstract

Abstract: Wordplay is an instructional application for collaborative multitouch tables designed to teach children of elementary school age. The goal of WordPlay is twofold. First, the tool aims to encourage collaboration and peer-assisted learning in an engaging environment. Second, WordPlay allows teachers the ability to develop their own content in order to use the tool as part of their normal curricula. Due to its design, WordPlay can be used not only to create exercises in grammar and spelling, but also in multiplication, addition, and sorting. This paper will discuss the design of the application, as well as the future research possibilities using this tool.
