LEARNING WITH FUN - An Application of Visual Cryptography

Young-Chang Hou, Zen-Yu Quan

Abstract

Visual Cryptography, an emerging cryptography technology, exploits the characteristics of human visual system to decrypt the overlapping images without mass and complicated computations. Almost all the related studies of visual cryptography were concentrated on the topics of the information security. In this paper, we propose to use the technique of visual cryptography to teach young kids counting. It can stimulate the curiosity of the kids and increase the fun of learning.
