The research activity will concern the design, development, and evaluation of multimodal interactive systems for supporting learning of mathematical concepts (arithmetic and geometry) by primary school children. In the framework of some serious games, such systems will analyse in real-time the motor behaviour of the children and will generate an auditory and/or visual feedback communicating the mathematical concepts the games address. Research will be carried out at the Casa Paganini - InfoMus research centre of DIBRIS in a multidisciplinary context where interaction with pedagogues, psychologists, psychophysicists, and teachers is required. Moreover, research can also encompass the development of systems that can adapt to the reduced capabilities of visual impaired children
