I have an idea for creating an educational game using fiducial markers. Here’s the basic idea:

The kids would have blocks with numbers/math symbols on one side and markers on the other. When they put the markers on the table, they could put blocks down and see the answer. So if they put a 5 block and a 3 block, with a + block in the middle and an = sign on the end - the answer is 8. But if the child put a 7 block down after the equal sign, the program would tell them they’re off or whatever. This would give a child a tactile method of experimenting with mathematics. I could see the same idea applied to spelling games and the like.

What do you think?

Thanks!
