The Virtual Playground

2003 - 2006

The Virtual Playground is an engaging simulation environment for children 9-12 years old.

mr proj VP In this immersive virtual playground (experienced in a CAVE-like VR system), the child user assumes the role of a designer that must carry out tasks, such as planning the layout of the playground by modifying, resizing and placing its various elements. These tasks require solving mathematical fractions problems. The VP was created for my research in evaluating interactivity in VEs for learning.
