Moving Beyond Boundaries

Designing Narrative Learning in the Digital Era

Mobeybou is a research project that investigates the learning and socializing potential of tangible user interfaces among young children.  It aims at  promoting the development of cognitive, social and language skills, within a multicultural framework.

We are currently developing a storytelling platform  that allows children to interact with digital content through the manipulation of physical blocks.
