Mi Jong

Mi Jong is a tangible collective learning tool that helps non-native Korean speakers learn the language. Based on Natalia’s previous design research, which evidences that learning with friends is more effective, we created a new way of learning. Through this collaborative game environment, we hope players are able to stimulate their learning potential by engaging physical motion.

Early Brainstorming

We started from creating a scenario and analyzing roles are need in a cross disciplinary collaborative team which include a marketing executive, two designers and an external consultant. In order to help us have a better understanding of how this team will work out, we

We began the project by creating a scenario and assigning roles to ourselves: As a design team consisting of a marketing executive, two in-house designers, and an external consultant, we were working toward ideating an early childhood educational product.

Early Interaction

The hardest part of this project was to figure out how can the user interact with tangible objects. Since we got so used to digital screen interaction, the initial interactions we came up with were limited by clicking, long pressed, drag and move which were underestimate the potential of interacting with a tangible object as well as the human physical abilities.
