Abstract

Ubiquitous touch projection technology is entering the market and allows touch screens to be projected onto any smooth surface at a lower cost. We created a mathematics manipulative application for a low-cost, ubiquitous touch projection system, and we conducted an observational study with 18 third-grade elementary students. Through our analysis of both video and system data, we identify common student interaction problems, evaluate how those interaction problems affect usability, engagement, and pair-work, and we make practical suggestions to aid future developers, educators, and students in using such a platform.
