Abstract

Making construals is a new digital skill that complements conventional programming. Its primary focus is on using computer-related technology to stage interactive experience of unprecedented richness and subtlety. This paper is a tutorial on the latest version of an instrument for making construals developed in the ongoing EU Erasmus+ CONSTRUIT! project. Its principal theme is the re-creation of "the OXO laboratory" - an interactive environment in which variants of the game of noughts-and-crosses can be freely designed and evaluated.
