Applying Wearable Technology in English Learning and Evaluating Learning Performance

Abstract

Wearable technology is predicted as the next big shift in technology and innovation. The applications of wearable technology in teaching and learning are expected to accelerate learning performance in the education context. For example, language learning or musical instrument playing requires a lot of hours practice to create the ability and accumulate skills. Whether wearable technology can accelerate English as a second language learning (ESL) and improve learning performance has been considered as an interesting and important research question. The objective of this paper is to develop an adaptive learning system which applies wearable technologies, Mozbii-a color-ware tool, with Electroencephalography (EEG) to examine ESL learners’ performance, experimenting with thirty elementary students. We expect our proposed multi-sensory tangible approaches help the students in their ESL’s learning performance. The findings of this paper contribute to the practice of wearable technology applications in ESL learning and teaching.
