Play Monnom / Online Digital Play
Compatibility: Responsive Web, Desktop, Mobile
Release Date: September, 2020
"An online digitally-enhanced environment Monnom (https://www.playmonnom.com) offers children body-object interaction and its system only requires a webcam. Its algorithm recognizes physical objects within view and drives the interaction with a digital canvas. By moving around and adding objects to their physical space, children can fictionalize its meaning and create their own place(s) within it with feedback from the digital environment."
"Even though the system uses a webcam, our image processing method only recognizes the coordinate, size, and color data of objects and does not record children’s personal data."
The online version has been assessed with 162 children (6-8 years old) at online-remote schooling with their class teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic, in the 2020-2021/Fall.
