The Activity Board 1.0: RFID-NFC WI-FI multitags desktop reader for education and rehabilitation applications

The Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) and in particular, the RFID/NFC technologies are natural candidates to enhance some well-known psycho-pedagogical practices in a Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) approach. The paper shows the prototype named Activity Board 1.0: an RFID prototype developed for the educational and rehabilitation aims. The innovative and strong assets of the prototype are: the Wi-Fi connection with the main device; and the multi-tags nature allowing more smart-objects at the same time. These two features are decisive for the educative and rehabilitative environments recovering practices based on the manipulation and multisensoriality (e.g. Montessorian pedagogy, exercises for cognitive diseases, etc.). In addition, in the article, the authors show some application where the Activity Board is already applied with success.
