Chinese Primary School English, Sandwich Storytelling, Tangible System Design
Work towards identifying characteristics of sandwich storytelling based tangible systems for Chinese Primary School English instruction starts with principles determined for Chinese primary school children when learning English. These principles are considered in the context of sandwiched storytelling. A review of a number of tangible projects for education presents the scope of tangible systems as they are applied in education. These lead to emerging themes, such as scale, that determine constraints on interaction design. A snippet from the traditional story the Three Little Pigs is used to reflect on characteristics of the design and implementation of this tangible system.
