Abstract

This study utilizes a digital game to improve individual's spatial abilities. An action game is designed and developed to achieve the purpose of the study. The game uses the 3D Studio Max 9.0 to build 3-D models: Photoshop CS2 for drawing characters and scenes textures, and Virtools Dev 4.0 for developing the game. In the game world, tasks are designed to increase spatial ability with rotating question, visual discrimination and visual memory with space, rotate, reverse, inference and displacement. This study provides a model of various entities for learners' contact, depict size, shape, aspect and position.
