Abstract

This article presents a body of work developed to focus on the development of innovative learning materials that promote young children’s exploration and collaborative playful learning that have been deeply inspired by Seymour Papert. Through this contribution, we highlight how his research and published concepts have had a fundamental influence upon the development of t-books, a digital manipulative that aims at promoting scaffolded, collaborative and creative storytelling.
