Abstract

Children are not necessarily motivated to collaborate if no common ground can be found. In this paper, we present t-vote, a system supporting children’s decision making. To encourage collaboration in a museum’s context, we employ tangible pawns on a tabletop interface and implicitly script the decision making process of children. We describe the system design, our design process, and rationale.
