Title : EFL Students’ Perceptions of Edmodo as a Supplementary Learning Tool
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Currently, Vietnamese non-majored students in tertiary education are struggling with English learning and rather confused of searching suitable ways to enhance their language abilities. The growing interest in mobile learning, that is, learning through mobile applications has been noticed in recent years. For the purpose of building a more flexible environment with engaged and enthusiastic students compared to traditional settings, Edmodo – a free and secure educational learning network was integrated into the curriculum as a supplementary tool. Previous studies have shown that Edmodo allows users to interact and share ideas or knowledge freely, which brings them a lot of inspiration in learning. The participants were 100 non-English majored students in two General English classes. The data will be collected through pre and post questionnaires, and semi-structured interviews. The result of the study indicates that the students have considerably positive attitudes towards the use of Edmodo as a useful and beneficial learning tool to supplement traditional classroom settings. Furthermore, it is considered as an effective tool to enhance students’ motivation, flexibility and participation in mobile learning. The finding of this study could be used to inspire the teachers to design more mobile learning activities.
