Title : Exploring the use of Nearpod as an interactive tool facilitating active learning for vocabulary acquisition.
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Traditional teacher-centered methods have often failed to provide sufficient opportunities for students to meaningfully engage with vocabulary learning and production.  Taking cognizance of this shortcoming, this study examined the effects of using active learning strategies via Nearpod as a means to boost vocabulary learning among ESL learners in an international school in Malaysia. 23 students (Year 6A) from an intact group participated in the study. The main data elicitation instruments used were the pre- and post-tests and focus group interviews (FGI). Students learned and acquired targeted vocabulary through the use of the technological tool, which facilitated active learning strategies and activities over a period of 3 weeks. FGIs were used to probe students’ learning experiences. Findings revealed a significant increase in vocabulary acquisition and retention of the targeted words. Participants also gave favourable feedback towards the use of Nearpod, indicating the effectiveness of the technological tool to increase student engagement. These results demonstrate the impact of active learning strategies through the use of technological tools in improving vocabulary acquisition.
