the child’s interaction a logging file to study the progress through
subsequent sessions. The file log captures each event –user event
or system event. With an ad-hoc analysis tool we study variables such
as the decreasing of time localization through sessions, error rate
and pattern of interaction. As we have described, the virtual environment
includes a main corridor with two divergent second corridors. To simplify
the graphs we show only some interactions that happened in the main
corridor. The child can perform and receive events from three different
surrounding voxels labeled as left, middle, and right. In the following
figures, each icon represents an event. The small box located in the
upper left side of each icon is different grayed to indicate the class
of the event.
Above, the child´s surrounding voxels drawed on the picture. Below,

made in the wrong voxel
After some training the child is able to pick up the objects almost
immediately without errors. Notice that to reach to the end of the
corridor the child took only 25 seconds instead of more than 60 seconds
in the first try –displayed in fig.7-.
