Title : How does the use of a self-regulated mobile vocabulary learning app motivate EFL learners?
Type : Poster (60 mins)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

The researcher has developed a mobile application, DoraCAT, to enable EFL learners to self-regulate their vocabulary learning according to their own study needs. Using DoraCAT, learners can diagnose their vocabulary knowledge to find target words to learn, practice those self-selected target words, and review the words they have practiced on the system. In order to help the learners achieve their own vocabulary learning goals, DoraCAT has a data set of 7,971 words at 19 frequency levels from a Japanese nationwide English proficiency test, Eiken, with sample sentences both in text and in audio. This poster will first introduce basic functions of DoraCAT and how this self-regulated mobile vocabulary learning app changes Japanese EFL learners’ appraisal towards vocabulary learning, especially their expectancies, values, and intentions based on the results of a questionnaire survey at multiple points and their actual learning logs.
