CyberPLAYce is a tangible learning tool for children supporting personal and computational expression, and particularly, playful storytelling. CyberPLAYce finds inspiration in the concept of embodied child-computer interaction, where meaning is constructed through spatially reconfiguring the physical environment. This poster briefly outlines the motivations for CyberPLAYce, and focuses on a participatory design and evaluation activity involving 8-10-year-old “co-designers.” The kinds of digital-physical-spatial play afforded by CyberPLAYce promise to cultivate thinking, imagining, creating, and sharing in children.
