Thursday, 19 January 2012
In the International Conference on Computers in Education held in Chiang Mai, Thailand in November 2011, the Chinese mobile learning research project "Move Idioms!" clinched another Best Overall Paper Award. Mobile learning research in NIE continues to gain momentum at the Learning Sciences Lab (LSL) after gaining yet more accolades in international academia.
Entitled "Analysing Students' After-School Artifact Creation Processes in a Mobile-Assisted Language Learning Environment", the paper, authored by Dr Wong Lung Hsiang, Dr Song Yanjie, Associate Professor Chai Ching Sing and Ms Zhan Ying, explores how teachers can incite motivation and parental involvement in the learning of idioms across a wide array of informal learning environment. The paper also distills how students approach their artifact creation process, thus making contributions to these much under-studied areas.
