Abstract

Multimodality has real potential to improve interaction between computers and people. Research in the fields of pervasive computing and ambient intelligence hasresulted in multimodal interfaces that enable communication between technology and people to be more natural and efficient. With many organisations ‘harnessingtechnology’ for educational and entertaining purposes, there is a growing interest in the field of edutainment software for children. Interactive games provide a suitablemeans for producing a motivational and enjoyable learningenvironment. This paper presents preliminary work on thedevelopment of an ambient intelligent multimodal learningenvironment for children (AmbiLearn) and an edutainment game(TreasureLearn).
