From Ryan:
The concept is a good one, and having a tangible way of rearranging stories is likely to help children learn about sequencing.  However, I have a couple of suggestions for improvement.  (1) As mentioned in class, having a circular path doesn't map so well onto a linear story.  When designing TUI's, it's important to decide on the "right" interaction before getting constrained by the technology.  There are a number of simple technologies that could help with a linear interface, such as RFID tags or "ibuttons".  (2) Moving between the computer screen for output and the tangible interface for input could be distracting.  What about some other type of output, like sound, that could come directly from the story tokens? 

From Kimiko:
As discussed in the class, I would like to see you discuss more in depth why the particular physical form you chose contributes to the actual interaction you are creating. Would your design help kids learn to tell stories? Perhaps in a non-conventional way? If so, why? Which aspects of your design help kids do this? If you decide to continue this project as your final project, you must be able to describe what kind of interaction you are creating and why your design is an ideal way to support this interaction.
