Presentation title
Using Kahoot! to Teach English Vocabulary: Benefits, Actual Impacts, and Influencing Factors from Students’ Perspective.
Presentation abstract
Kahoot!, a game-based student response system (GSRS), has recently emerged as one popular teaching tool with the participation of seven million teachers worldwide to date (Kahoot!, 2021). In the field of English language teaching, Kahoot! is commonly used in vocabulary lessons because of its user-friendliness, and its potentials in boosting students’ motivation, engagement, and learning outcome (Wang, 2015). While the actual effectiveness of a teaching approach depends to a large extent on students’ perceptions, such conclusions on the benefits of Kahoot!, however, have been mostly generated from experts’ and teachers’ voices. This mixed-methods study, therefore, aims to explore (i) what students generally think about, (ii) what they perceive as the actual impacts, and (iii) what they believe as the factors affecting teacher’ use of Kahoot! in English vocabulary teaching. Based on data from 49 university students, collected via questionnaires and follow-up interviews, the findings revealed some interesting discrepancies between participating students’ perceptions and the common beliefs of experts and teachers in the literature about the benefits of Kahoot! and the factors influencing teachers’ use of this game. Such mismatch guarantees useful implications for educators who plan to use Kahoot! in English vocabulary lessons, and gamification approach in teaching more broadly.
