English abstract
In the Swedish preschool curriculum, it is stated that children’s learning should happen through play. There is also an expectation that children will engage with ICT and be provided with situations that require them to engage with mathematical concepts. Consequently, the object of this research project is to evaluate mathematical games designed for interactive tables in regard to children’s needs and intersts. Four mathematical games are analysed to determine whether they utilise the affordances of the interactive tables in ways that were likely to support preschool children’s possibilities for learning mathematical concepts and language as well as how to interact with each other. This investigation provides information about how the affordances of interactive tables can be utlised to best meet the needs of young children for future design projects.
