Fiction Design of a 3D Tutor for and with School Children (Paper)
In this paper, we describe the fiction design approach we are using in collaboration with school children and teachers in order to produce a 3D Tutor.
We introduce the actors and procedure we are following with particular emphasis on the activities devised to engage children in the various stages of design and produce the necessary output for each of the facets of the 3D Tutor.
Our assumption is that making learning more fun will increase the overall level of children’s engagement and their motivation towards it.
Thus, we describe how children are helping us to design a 3D Tutor able to cater for individual learning styles as well as being fun to work with. Finally, we discuss how this ongoing experience with collaborative fiction design is providing us with directions towards the first prototype of our 3D Tutor.
