Computer Science is not simply programming

Statement of the Problem

Upon browsing the net we found this quote by Joanne Oppenheim that gives us an inspiration. Below is our SotP.

“PLAYING SHOULD BE FUN! In our great eagerness to teach our children we studiously look for “educational” toys, games with built-in lessons, books with a “message.” Often these “tools” are less interesting and stimulating than the child’s natural curiosity and playfulness. Play is by its very nature, educational. And it should be pleasurable. When the fun goes out of play, most often so does the learning.”
– Joanne E. Oppenheim (Kids and Play, ch. 1, 1984)

To address children ages 6-8 that are kinesthetic learners, an enjoyable game that will allow them to move freely, learn and be assessed should be develop using the current tools and technologies available. Kinespell using SunSpot and Wii will help kinesthetic learners learn spelling and at the same time still enjoy playing. A comparative study of the two device will help us know which one will best cater the learning needs of the students while using the application.
