The Role of Multisensory Design in a Digital Age
Seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling are the primary means by which we humans experience the world around us. But if we do not engage our five senses, then we do not learn to make the most of our brain's abilities. This research focuses on promoting multisensory experiences in children. In contrast to playing on a screen, where children rarely use all their senses, tactile play requires the interdependence of the senses and thus promotes cognitive and social development.
