Abstract

Experiential learning is effective for educating children. However, there are many issues associated with this technique. In this study, we describe the development of a learning support system using which learners can experience touching and viewing in real and virtual environments. In the first stage of our study, we develop a larval mimesis experience system consisting of a Kinect sensor, larval models, and load sensors. The system is controlled using Arduino. Using the proposed system, learners can exercise full body interaction in the virtual environment; specifically, they can experience how larva models are observed in the real environment. The operation of this system was experimentally evaluated by learners from a primary school. The results indicate that the system is suitable for the use of children. In addition, the effectiveness of the learning support was evaluated by using a questionnaire. This paper summarizes the development of the proposed system and describes the evaluation results.
