Education has always been a crucial and concerning issue in human civilization. With the increasing popularity of games, various instructional theories based on game-based learning have been proposed. However, whether in gaming or learning, scaffolding plays a significant supportive role. Therefore, this study adopts the four dimensions of FSLSM as the classification of learning styles and designs four different types of scaffolding for players to use. By analyzing the behavior of players with different learning styles in using scaffolding during the game, we aim to tailor the most suitable scaffolding for players with different learning styles. The research findings indicate that when the educational content in game-based learning relates to logic and engineering, providing more visualized and detailed scaffolding will enhance learners’ motivation to actively use scaffolding and improve the overall learning quality.
