Abstract

This paper explores augmented tangible user interfaces (ATUIs) as a new educational paradigm for teaching special need children concepts from abstract domains. Case study being presented focuses on learning concepts of musical notation through constructivist multisensory AR experience utilizing TUI. The study was conducted in collaboration with Speciální Základní Škola Vysoké Mýto (Czech special needs school), where the experiment with such learning method using proposed ATUI called ARcomposer was held. In a user study with 22 participants, it was found that ATUIs are not only useful for children with intellectual disabilities, but that most of the children also yield great educational gains. The results of the study were concluded in a form of quantitative research in cooperation with pedagogues specialized in teaching students with intellectual disabilities.
