From an Education standpoint, I feel you can replace control/animal for the term cause/effect. This is basic for learning/gaming for young/special needs children. This is the beginning step where the learner/gamer realizes that if I move/touch/blink, etc. then the animal moves whether it is a stuffed battery operated toy or an animal that dances/sings/jumps on the computer screen.

Hi mark,

I learned at the "Eltern-LAN" (Event where parents play with pedagogue
computer games)
That I do not know anything about pedagogy.
Would be interesting to see the opinion of a pedagogue.

I am not sure if this is useful or not.
The translation: control -> figure is interesting.
But of course we do not know if the immersion and gameplay works.

For exergaming I learned that it is very important to try it out.
You cannot get an opinion just by looking.

Best regards,
Sandra
