Abstract

The Model of Game-based Learning in Fire Safety developed for preschool children to educate them in learning fire safety issues. Due to the lack of awareness towards fire hazard, there are few factors that have arisen regarding this issue such as children's ages, experiences and knowledge. The main objective of this study is to identify the user requirements of preschool children in developing the Model of Game-Based Learning in Fire Safety. This study involved six preschool children of Tabika Kemas Kampung Berawan, Limbang Sarawak by using User-Centered Design method. The ability of cognitive, behavior and psychomotor skills are the main aspects to develop the model. Thus, to lower the risk of injuries during practical training in real situation, there is a need to educate them using the technology of tablet. Therefore, a prototype has been developed known as APi Game-Based Learning as a platform for children to learn about fire safety issues. Hence, this APi prototype developed to validate the Model of Game-Based Learning in Fire Safety development for preschool children. Thus, the finding of the study showed the engagement of children in learning fire safety through game improved their knowledge, behavior and psychomotor skills. Overall, this study makes an important contribution in determining the usability on the level of effectiveness towards preschool children through active learning.
