The types of interfaces people use to operate their digital tools are changing. Haptic devices, retinal trackers, speech recognition and gestural interfaces are becoming more sophisticated and reliable and are starting to become more widely adopted in the general public. These advanced tools are now challenging content developers to take advantage of new levels of interactivity between users and computers. This paper focuses on the growing popularity of gestural interfaces and explores some of the different types of content that is now being developed and what the future holds for gestural interfaces in technology-based learning environments.
