With today’s technological advancement, educational system must work side by side and maximize what advanced technology is offering. The challenge is to create new tools and activities that will maximize learning that will fit the student’s learning styles. KineSpell2, a digital game-based learning application, was developed based on the VAK Model that helps children learn how to spell. It has software components that cater to visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners. The SunSPOT and WiiRemote were used as controllers. Initial test shows that the Learning Components of the game (Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic Component) are acceptable. The result also suggests that games that supports different learning styles motivates students to learn to spell new words, and that SunSPOT is the preferred controller of the game.

2nd Phase of Testing

leave a comment »

January 7, 2010

We were informed by sir Rom and Maam Weng that WSG peeps will join PCSC, therefore must submit a paper that is due on January 17. So everyone must test the projects as soon as possible.

January 8, 2010
Since in our letter to Dr. Zuniga last December includes the final testing, we went to UPIS to schedule the testing and to give the Parent’sPermit to the students.

But because it is UPIS’ exam week on the 2nd to 3rd week of January, we cannot test KineSpell2 with their students. So instead of UPIS grade 2 students, we decided to contact Roosevelt College in Marikina.
