The Application of a Cloud-Based Student, Teacher, and Parent Platform in English as a Foreign Language Education
Chiu, Fu-Yuan
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v13 n3 p178-187 Jul 2014
This study constructed a cloud-based student, teacher, and parent platform (CSTPP) in collaboration with a Taiwanese textbook publisher. Junior high school students' attitudes to learning English using the developed system were subsequently examined. The study participants were divided into 3 groups: Those in Group A employed the CSTPP with parental participation, those in Group B employed the CSTPP without parental participation, and those in the Control group received traditional lectures. A learning attitude questionnaire was used to assess the students' responses before and after adopting the 3 learning models. The results of this study indicated that the students who used the CSTPP with parental participation, exhibited altered attitudes toward the teaching methods within 1 month because their assumption that they could only learn from teachers was overturned. After the experiment, a system satisfaction survey was conducted with the students who had used the CSTPP on tablet PSs in classrooms and those who had used the CSTPP on computers at home. Regarding the survey results, both groups of students obtained high scores. In addition, the overall design of the CSTPP was popular among students. This platform is currently available on for students to access and use.
