Abstract: A combination of modern technology and hand-crafted items is used as a learning tool for children. Instructions from a server are relayed via a cellular phone network to the user. The user places hand-crafted objects on a transparent surface and their positions are captured with a motion camera. Captured data is immediately available to a teacher monitoring the child’s activities and also stored for later analyses with the aim of improving the learning system. Centralised user monitoring frees valuable human resources. Limited field-of-view and optical alignment difficulties are some of the problems discussed.
