Teacher-Guided Interactive Multimedia for Teaching English in an EFL Context
Tsai, Roland; Jenks, Michael
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v18 n1 p91-111 Jan 2009
This quasi-experimental study explored the effect of a "Teacher Guided Multimedia" CD-ROM program as a supplement in teaching vocabulary acquisition to EFL students. Eighty seven juniors in the Food and Beverage Management Department at Yuanpei University in northern Taiwan participated in the study. Students from two intact classes were assigned to the control and the experimental groups for four weeks. The researchers divided the experimental group's two weekly one-hour sessions into one hour of traditional didactic instruction and one hour of the "Teacher Guided Multimedia" CD-ROM program instruction. The control group received two hours of traditional instruction only. The same instructor taught both groups lessons of identical content. The students took a pretest prior to the beginning of the study and a posttest after delivery of the treatment. The results indicated the group that used the CD-ROM program achieved better English vocabulary acquisition than the traditional didactic instruction group. The results are discussed in light of vocabulary acquisition. Suggestions for future research are made. (Contains 8 tables and 1 figure.)
