What can Children Learn through Game-based Learning Systems?


In this talk, I will present key ideas and underlying philosophies of our research projects. I will also describe about several systems for supporting children¡¦s collaborative learning, such as CarettaKids, T-RHYTHM, and so on. Lessons learned through the design and evaluation of these systems, and some thoughts for DIGITEL researches will be discussed.
