Abstract

This paper discusses how children use tools with language to support their interactions in a tangible tabletop game. Using Speech Act theory as a theoretical framework, videos of dyads using the land use planning game Youtopia were qualitatively analyzed to identify emergent themes. A key finding is that learner’s use tools and talk together to present evidence to support their position. The implication is that tangible designers can target support for specific kinds of collaborative interactions by creating tools to provide evidence for anticipated points of decision making, negotiation and conflict.
