This paper presents an experimental study on young childrens off-task behaviors with and without the designed system called e-PAYA (PA for pat, YA for yell) which comprises learning devices, a sensory input device, a wireless local network and RFID software. We demonstrate the impacts on learning by applying e-PAYA in storytelling. The research methods include observation, questionnaire survey, interviewing and experiment. Sixty 4-year-old children were selected from a private preschool in Taipei City. Half of them were arranged in an experimental group with e-PAYA, with the others in a control group without e-PAYA. The proposed framework was designed, implemented and validated through a prototype system. The results show that there are significant differences in regard to group and gender. With e-PAYA, frequency analysis shows that on-task performance is significantly greater than that in the control group (p=.001).
