Haptics allow students to “explore relationships in simulations not feasible in the physical realm because of limits of time, space, cost, or safety” (www.elsevier.com/locate/compedu). Haptic interfaces provide realistic force feedback (e.g. simulating object compliance, weight, and inertia) and/or tactile feedback (e.g. simulating surface contact geometry, smoothness, slippage, and temperature). Haptics can be useful for many areas in education. Here are just a few that can be useful with elementary students and students with special needs in particular.
