1. IntroductionIn these days, there is growing demand for effective games for learning for young children. How game can make young children learn mathematics more fun with benefits of new computational media. Our environment dramatically has been changed by rapid development of computational media, such as a Smart Phone, a Tablet PC, and a Smart TV. This computational power will be more influential on our society. The idea is how we can use a Smart Phone and a Smart TV on education. In last decades, our educational environment has been changed slowly. But in a Smart society, “Can we think the new educational method?” What if we use a game and new computational media on education? I think we can more cultivate youngster’s creativity with academic performance. Now is time to change our educational circumstances by using new ideas.
2. Application: Graph Paper GameThis is “Graph Paper Game” that makes learning more fun at a Smart Home and Classroom. Basically, Graph Paper game is a fun game to enjoy. But we were thinking how the game teaches youngsters about six-grade levels geometry. I researched about New York Geometry Math Standards that young children have to learn. Based on this research, the game concept has been developed.
The game is designed to know about the Pythagoras’ Theorem. People can enjoy this casual game that possibly teach about basic geometry for youngster on the computer. Moreover, “Graph Paper Game” is not just a game to learn and enjoy Mathematics for young students. Not playing this game but just displaying “Graph Paper Game”, people can experience and appreciate an artistic casual game. This esthetic and enjoyable graphic interface will make young children get interested in the beauty of mathematics.
More possibility of the game is that people can use a Smartphone at a Smart Home and Classroom as a remote controller to play “Graph Paper Game” through Wi-Fi connection between a computer (a Smart TV) and a Smartphone.
3. The New Interactive Concept: a Smart Phone and a Smart TVHow a Smart Environment can benefit our home, education, and society. Graph Paper Game is designed to communicate between a Smart Phone and a computer (will be a Smart TV). User can interact with a Smart TV at their home or classroom with a Smart Phone remote controller. This interaction concept is going to be advantage to a Smart Society.
Technologically, This project uses a Wi-Fi network and a Socket communication (TCP/IP) between a Smart Phone and a Computer (will be a Smart TV that is also a computer can connect to networks). This technology is a new interactive way to make a Smart Phone connects to everywhere. We can use this technological concept not only on the interaction between a hand-held device and a TV but also a Smart Phone and any computational media.
4. ConclusionIn a Smart Society, a Smart Phone will be more powerful device that can connect to everywhere. Users can use a Smart Phone as a remote controller at a Smart Home environment. The new interactive way with a Smart Phone will change our culture, education, and society. And Game will be new media that can make learning more fun with benefits of Smart Environment.
