This paper presents an educational experience involving the application of a visual interaction environment based on gestures (Moving Models of Interaction in Vision-based Gesture Interfaces) in psychomotor sessions that resulted from a collaborative effort between the Department of Mathematics and Informatics and the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of the Balearic Islands and primary school M. Antonia Salvà in Mallorca.

The main objective is to create new interaction paradigms of and test their applicability in the field of education. To this end, the interface was designed around natural interaction through gestures, expressions and movements. It was used in experimental psychomotor classes at a school in order to stimulate a group of 4 to 5 year old children’s capacity for corporal representation.

The current phase of this ongoing investigation analyses the environmental conditions for the installation of the apparatus, its location in the psychomotor classroom, user work patterns, criteria for occupying the space during the session and type of psychomotor games linked to the perception, recognition and location of body movements performed interactively with the screen.
