Iio, Takamasa; Maeda, Ryota; Ogawa, Kohei; Yoshikawa, Yuichiro; Ishiguro, Hiroshi; Suzuki, Kaori; Aoki, Tomohiro; Maesaki, Miharu; Hama, Mika – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This paper reports how robot-assisted language learning (RALL) impacts Japanese adults' English speaking skills. With existing research on RALL focusing on children, there is little evidence indicating RALL's effects on adults. We developed a RALL system comprising a robot, a tablet, and designed learning materials for speaking practice. To…

Shyr, Wen-Jye; Chen, Ching-Huei – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
In recent years, the flipped classroom has become prevalent in many educational settings. Flipped classroom adopts a pedagogical model in which short video lectures are viewed by students at home before class so that the teacher can lead students to participate in activities, problem-solving, and discussions. Yet the design or use of technology…

Wu, Ting-Ting – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Memorizing English vocabulary is often considered uninteresting, and a lack of motivation exists during learning activities. Moreover, most vocabulary practice systems automatically select words from articles and do not provide integrated model methods for students. Therefore, this study constructed a mobile game-based English vocabulary practice…

Yang, J. C.; Lin, M. Y. D.; Chen, S. Y. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Anxiety plays an influential role in foreign language learning. However, a lack of attention was paid to examining the effects of anxiety levels on learning performance and gaming performance in digital game-based learning. To this end, this study developed a game-based English learning system and investigated how different levels of anxiety…

Barrot, Jessie S. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
The increasing popularity of Facebook has prompted scholars and educators to explore its potentials as a learning environment for various fields of education. Along this line, several reviews of literature have been written about the educational use of Facebook; however, none of them have focused on a specific field of interest such as language…

Zhai, Xuesong; Fang, Qiansheng; Dong, Yan; Wei, Zhihui; Yuan, Jing; Cacciolatti, Luca; Yang, Yalong – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Previous studies posited the effectiveness of stimulated recall. However, few studies explored how SR is implemented in a relatively static context, for example, online self-directed learning, or took human factors, for example, cognitive style and gender, into consideration in such a context. To fill this gap, the current study, aims to introduce…

Hooshyar, Danial; Yousefi, M.; Wang, M.; Lim, H. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Although game-based learning has been increasingly promoted in education, there is a need to adapt game content to individual needs for personalized learning. Procedural content generation (PCG) offers a solution for difficulty in developing game contents automatically by algorithmic means as it can generate individually customizable game contents…

Lee, K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Integrating computer-mediated intercultural communication (CMIC) activities into language curricula has been discussed as an innovative approach. Despite the increasing number of successful examples reporting positive outcomes of adopting CMIC activities in language-learning environments, it has also been noted that there are significant…

Wong, L-H.; Looi, C-K. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
In recent years, we have witnessed the concomitant rise of communicative and contextualized approaches as well as the paradigmatic development of the mobile-assisted language learning (MALL) framework in analysing language learning. The focus of MALL research has gradually shifted from content-based (delivery of learning content through mobile…
