Abstract

In kindergarten education, effective teaching is defined to be successful when children are learning while playing. As a combination of indoor and outdoor activities, the purpose of kindergarten education is to develop children physically, psychologically and socially. However, there are always some limitations from the surrounding environment that prevent kindergarten education from achieving its purposes. This study considers the effect of changing infrastructure inside the classroom on children’s learning through physical activities, in particular, the effect of projector arrangement inside classrooms on kindergarten children’s physical activities. This study is conducted in three different environments: “outdoor environment,” “one-projector environment,” and “two-projector environment” with the aim to learn about the effect of each environment on children’s learning process through physical activities. The results point to a confident relationship between children’s physical development and in class physical activities through interacting with projector images.
