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.
