  • 1. Tuesday, August 03, 2010 10:05 PM FEEDBACK Immediate • During the "study" session, students either study with the translation on screen, and if they turn it off, they have the option of turning it back on every time • Also, in the "Test your knowledge" activity, a feedback box appears after every "submit" click Correct response • In "Test your knowledge", a correct answer is immediately praised and an incorrect feedback box includes the translation Elaborative (low certitude) • Each feedback box has the option of going back to the study card • The study card includes a breakdown of words for the phrases, which is more elaborative Tracked data to goals • Learners can set their own goals and then can at any time monitor their progress on the "progress" page on the home page • Learners set a goal for the number of iterations for "Test your knowledge" activity, and their progress is tracked in the feedback box Results related to goals • See above SEQUENCING/SPACING Schedule • When a word/phrase is successfully completed in the "Test your knowledge" phase, it is automatically included in what the learner studies by default every other day for a week, every week for a month, and every month for a year. The schedule can be changed in the "Settings" page Discrete and Spaced • Each word/phrase gets its own page. It only progresses when the learner is ready. (The user controls when to advance) Intersession Interval • When a word/phrase is "completed," it is not brought back the next day, but the following day and follows the schedule listed above MOTIVATION Captures interest • Learners have considerable freedom of what to study • Includes pictures and appropriate audio Stimulates inquiry • Word study cards allows learners to see the word used in a real example if they click on the word Attention • Learners have freedom to study what is important to them. Learners can continually update content by entering in their own or by downloading and uploading more content Relevant outcomes • Allows learners to choose function, task, and phrase/word to study • Incorporates written, pictoral, and audio learning to accommodate learner preferences Builds confidence • Shows examples of how words can be used in a phrase when the word is clicked in the "study" activity • Includes a lovely blue feedback box with cute balloons following a correct answer Student satisfaction • Design is built on helping the learners learn words and phrases that meet practical tasks that correlate to their own reasons for learning the language. All words and phrases are geared to help learners accomplish real-world tasks according to their purposes COGNITIVE LOAD Verbal and non-verbal • Includes pictures and written/audio examples in both the "study" activity and the "test your knowledge" activity Avoids cognitive overload • Text is always immediately above the visuals • Audio option is optional Limitations of audience • There is considerable user freedom, allowing users to adapt the settings to their needs Chunking • Words and phrases are listed underneath both task and reason for learning the language • Incorporates pictures, spoken, and written language with each other PRIOR KNOWLEDGE Prior knowledge • Includes a "Test your knowledge" option available for any word/phrase at any time • Allows users to select number of iterations to "complete" a word or phrase Open Content • Users can personally develop and include their own content, from words/phrases to tasks to reasons for learning the language • New content can be uploaded from the internet • This product could be downloaded for free perhaps with 1 purpose and a few tasks, but additional packages would need to be purchased. Open content is still available since the user can create and develop the content on his/her own program, and any content could be found very easily on the internet Low/High prior knowledge • For the particular task (memorizing words and phrases) I saw no practical application of this requirement. It didn't see nece ssary to try and linguistically explain to the user why negotiations translates to "peregovori" in Russian. ALT Activities support outcomes • All activities are directed towards the pre-determined outcome of learning words and phrases • Learners have the freedom to adapt and use the program to meet their individual goals (skip words to the bank whenever they want, set iterations low or high, etc.) Transition time is minimized • Transition time between items in a study is as quick as a click of the button • Transition time between phrases and words is a click of 2 buttons • Transition time between "study" and "test your knowledge" activities is at most a click of 5 buttons Unfiled Notes Page 1
