Abstract

本研究では,タッチパネル付き大画面ディスプレイを接続したパソコンの利点と問題点を確認するために,幼稚園のあずかり保育の時間での試用と,観察結果に基づく考察を行った。同時に,教育ソフトウェアの試作,および,園児にふさわしいソフトウェアの条件とインタフェースについての考察も行った。タッチパネルは,指で画面を直接触ることでパソコンを操作できるようにする機器である。試用の結果,操作をしている園児に対し,周りで見ている園児が自発的に教えるなどの方法で活動に関わる場面や,活動している園児の様子を見て,周りで見ている園児が自然に活動に関わる場面が確認できた。このことより,タッチパネル付き大画面ディスプレイを活用することで,従来のパソコンの問題点である友達と遊ぶことが少なくなり人間関係の形成能力が低くなるという懸念を改善し,園児同士の関わりの機会を持ったパソコン活用が可能になることが示唆されたと考える。

This study aims at recognizing both of advantages and disadvantages that computers have by using a large display covered with a touch panel in preschool education. First of all, we studied about principles to realize appropriate design of educational software and interface for practical use by children in preschools, and developed them. Next, we carried out a trial of introducing computers by using a large display covered with a touch panel for temporary cared children. As a result of the trial, the main function of a large display and a touch panel, which enables direct operation on a computer by a fingertip touch on a display, brought out children's spontaneous attitudes to participate to activities. For examples, a child played with it first, some surrounded him gradually and taught him or joined to play as a natural result. In the past, computerization of preschool education was avoided because it was believed that computers obstructed to establish human relationships and deteriorated children's communicating abilities, however, we could show this disadvantage of computers was improved by introducing a large display covered with a touch panel. It will make possible to use computers with enough communications among children in preschool education.
