Multi Activity Board

Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs)

include all of those technologies that aim at connecting the virtual world with the physical one, allowing to manage the digital component by using tangible materials, that become real inputs to the system. The Multi Activity Board has the special feature of "recognising" tangible materials in order to make educational paths that involve multisensoriality (including smell, taste and touch) possible.

In this context, physical objects represent the users' interaction tools with the digital device (a common tablet), thus creating a potential to overcome the concept of “virtualisation” and allowing the student to really experience the learning process in an intimate way.

Awards

During the international conference “Smart Learning Ecosystem and Regional Development 2017” (ASLERD 2017) held in Aveiro (Portugal) on May 22 and 23, 2017, an International Contest for Students was held in order to give an award to the best prototype developed for educational purposes within smart and people-centred ecosystems. The event aimed at promoting prototypes and demonstrators equipped with “smartness”, i.e. systems designed to support learning ecosystems that focus on the user and their educational needs, in order to achieve a higher level of skills while simultaneously motivating users.

From the Federico II University, Raffaele Di Fuccio, at that time a PhD student at the NAC (Natural and Artificial Cognition Lab), a laboratory directed by professor Orazio Miglino, participated in the conference by presenting a prototype called Multisensory Activity Board – MAB, based on RFID/NFC technologies. The scientific jury elected the demonstrator from the University of Naples Federico II as the winner of the international competition for the best smart device for educational purposes.
