Game-based micro-learning approach for language vocabulary acquisition using LingoSnacks
MetadataShow full item record
Acquisition of new vocabulary is an important element for language learning but it requires repeated and varied exposure to the new words and their usage. This paper reports the experience of designing and developing a game-based micro-learning platform (named LingoSnacks) for interactive learning of Arabic vocabulary. The LingoSnacks learning platform provides an environment of authoring learning content and delivering it to the learner in game-like interactive learning activities. Usability evaluation was conducted to refine the system and improve its usability. Empirical testing results for students who used LingoSnacks indicate that the participants were able to increase their rate of vocabulary acquisition as the number of new vocabulary that they can recognize, recall and retain was significantly higher that participants who just used conventional lessons in a classroom.
