The TangiPlan System

The TangiPlan System that includes multiple tangible objects and an android tablet application. Each object represents a task that needs to be executed by the child during his or her morning routine. Using TangiPlan consists of two main stages:

  • Planning: This occurs the evening before, when the child couples task with a tangible object and places it in the location where the task is supposed to be performed.
  • Execution: During this stage, which occurs the next morning, the objects serve as physical reminders for their corresponding tasks. The child activates each object at the beginning of the task, and deactivates it when the task is complete. While active, the object indicates elapsing time.
Tablet Application

The tablet application enables real-time monitoring of task-completion. In this manner, the child can be reminded to complete overlooked tasks. Moreover, the application provides performance-based feedback, guiding the child to allocate more or less time to a certain task according to past performance.
