Abstract

With the advance of tangible technology, more and more educational systems are enhanced. This paper describes how tangible technology could enhance animal companions in terms of human computer interaction. These potential advantages are further organized as three design considerations, which further underpin the development of tangible animal companions. The tangible animal companions are also applied to the learning activity of traditional Chinese characters for young students. By doing so, tangible technology in learning can be evaluated and advanced in the future.
