Online Submission, US-China Education Review A 1 p140-146 2011
This study investigated the effectiveness of animated interactive storybook on elementary school students' recall. This experiment utilized 77 fourth grade students in three groups. Each student was randomly assigned with one of the three conditions: (1) computer presentation of interactive storybooks with animation; (2) computer presentation of storybooks without animation; and (3) traditional print storybooks. Students' recall was measured by using multiple-choice test. The researcher used quantitative methods to analyze participants' responses in the experiment. The results of statistical analysis indicated that there were significant differences in the students' recall scores. The students who read the computer presentation of storybooks with animation showed significantly higher recall scores than those who read the computer presentation of storybooks without animation and the traditional print version of storybooks. In other words, animation used in an interactive storybook may help students recall better than no animation use. (Contains 2 tables.)
