Intentional Vocabulary Learning Using Digital Flashcards
Hung, Hsiu-Ting
English Language Teaching, v8 n10 p107-112 2015
As an attempt to follow through on the claims made by proponents of intentional vocabulary learning, the present study set out to examine whether and how digital flashcards can be incorporated into a university course to promote the vocabulary learning of English language learners. The overall research findings underscore the value of learning vocabulary with digital flashcards as an alternative to more conventional resources, and draw attention to the relative merits of embedding digital flashcards in collaborative learning tasks in classroom settings. This article then concludes by considering practical implications for supporting intentional vocabulary learning with the use of digital flashcards.
