image Check out this video demonstration of SynergyNet, a multi-touch framework that runs on top of a gaming and physics engine.

The research project has the following goals:


  • Aim 1: To create a radically new technology-rich learning environment that integrates with traditional classroom
    layouts and collective activities.
  • Aim 2: To design and implement a new form of user interface for educational multi-touch systems.
  • Aim 3: To formulate a new pedagogy that eases transition and movement between teacher-centric and pupilcentric interaction.
  • Aim 4: To analyse pupils’ learning strategies to inform fundamental research by capturing data as pupils use the SynergyNet environment.
