dc.description.abstract Print Quest is an online educational application for young children that focuses on making printing fun while using new tablet technology that is quickly becoming more accessible and affordable. The primary goal of this research is to determine if children can improve their motor skills with the pen/tablet interface and have it transfer to the pen/paper medium. A secondary goal is to determine if creating a learning experience within a game environment will keep children engaged and motivated to learn on their own as well as to help children that have problems staying focused on school related tasks. Because the final research has not been completed, this presentation will focus on discussing the research methods planned and well as showing a demonstration of the application. This study will use a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to determine if a participant has improved their printing skills throughout the course of the study. Participants will have several sessions using the application and will be required to fill out printing worksheets at the beginning and end of the research period. Additional methods will include several questionnaires with participants, parents and teachers and ranking of the worksheets by the classroom teachers. en_US
