Abstract: The purpose of this project was the development of edutainment software for elementary schoolchildren. We named this software "Manabi-no-Kakera (MnK)" in Japanese. "Manabi-no-Kakera (MnK)" means ga piece of learningh. We hoped that each child would cooperate to gather many pieces of learning and makes the fruits of learning collaboratively through this software. We represented this learning process as making a jigsaw puzzle. This project ran for one year. We practiced group learning using our software three times at an elementary school. The target children were 5th grade elementary schoolchildren. We divided a class into six groups. They enjoyed cooperating and communicating with other children through using this edutainment software (MnK).
