Abstract

Interaction design is about designing interactions. We thus need to understand what makes up (good) 'interactivity'. This paper discusses experiences with an exercise that aims to sensitize students for interaction qualities and to make them familiar with central concepts on the nature of interactivity through analysis of physical toys. Reflection on students' insights and observations reveals how these abstract notions interrelate in complex ways and provides vivid examples, giving evidence of the exercise's value.
