CamQuest: Design and evaluation of a tablet application for educational use in preschools
Paper in proceedings, 2014

This paper describes the design, testing and evaluation of CamQuest, a tablet application intended for educational practice in preschools. CamQuest enables children to search for and photograph geometrical shapes in their surroundings with the tablet camera. In this paper, the results of three encounters with preschool children aged four to five are presented and discussed, as well as the design and concept of CamQuest. Each encounter with children was carried out with a different approach; testing, co-designing, and evaluating. The application can be used as a pedagogical tool, which enables preschool children to recognize and explore geometrical shapes in their environment through using digital media. Copyright 2014 ACM.
