leave a comment »

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.

KineSpell2, a digital game-based learning application, was developed to maximize learning of spelling. It provides an enjoyable environment that motivates students to learn without setting aside their learning styles. It utilizes two game controllers, namely, SunSPOT and Wii Remote. The purpose of this research is to compare the two controllers in terms of the controllers’ usability based on Ease of Use and Rate of Familiarization. It also tries to establish the preferred controller of the students. The test result suggests that the target user preferred the SunSPOTs as game controller.

Paperworks Part 2

December 09, 2009

I went to UPIS to meet the principal and to finally give the parents permit while Rose Ann went to College of Education library to research for more books that could help us in writing our paper. I was informed that the principal already went to the High School building so I decided to look for her there. When I arrived at the Principal’s office (H/S building), the principal is not yet there so I wait for almost an hour until her secretary arrived and told me to go back at UPIS(elementary building) and look for Mrs. Linda Tolentino. After some unfortunate events (I am not going to write it here), I finally gave the parents permit to the tester’s adviser. She told me to return on Friday for the result of the permits.
