Abstract

This research is based on the concept of operation by a child to apply interactive technology on body movements. Based on the core technology of interactive technology, the wii remote and homemade infrared emitter are used in conjunction with the teaching material; the interactive design is infused into teaching, thereby bringing the children the experience of the interactive technology application. There are two cases on this study, they are actually applied on children with developmental disabilities, and the overall equipment cost is approximately US$50.Case 1 and 2 are children took an infrared emitter to control the interactive teaching materials. The teaching materials design by customer made for the children with developmental disabilities, all the interactive teaching materials design by flash software and power point. The participants took infrared pen as a pc mouse through wii remote and laptop. In this research, the devices relied upon user-center design, reducing the learning loading from their teaching materials and enhance their learning motivation and interest. The research applies wii interactive technology into the design of teaching materials; technically, the concept is derived from the infrared receiver on the wii remote, the main purpose is to teach children in the resource classes an interactive learning method. Through the application of low cost interactive technology, the emphasis is placed on aspects such as ease of learning by resource class teachers, low equipment cost and ease of promotion etc. Based on the fundamentals of making the operating interface simpler and burden-free, the interactive technology is applied on elementary school students and kindergarten children to produce fun learning.
