Learning through experience plays a very crucial role in spatial thinking, especially for children with poor progress in understanding concepts and with low memory skill. This study investigated whether the above mentioned problem can be overcome by a training program designed to enhance their cognition. Children with lower understanding of 2D and 3D objects and poor in mathematics were assessed on working memory and their academic performance before and after their adaptive training program. An adaptive training program was designed which enhances the learning experience of children by interacting with 3D objects using force feedback theory. The interaction itself creates a real experience of interacting with physical world and understand its parameters like weight, mass, force, friction, shape, material and viscosity. This finding indicates that the force feedback interaction with the 3D model creates a positive impact on working memory and associates with the cognitive development of children in the age of 8 to 10 years.
