Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This study evaluated the learning motivations of the foreign language oral interaction course integrating Computer-Mediated Communication and Native-Speaker peer-tutoring strategies based on the assessment results of ARCS motivation design. The study found that no matter the students used the reflection strategy or not after the class, they will have confidence in the oral peer-tutoring activities when the students do concept mapping activities every time before they conducted the oral peer-tutoring activity via CMC platform. However, if the students did not used the concept mapping strategy, the students could use the reflection strategy in the post-activity had higher confidence than the students who did not used the reflection strategy when they reviewed after the class. Conversely, the study found thatno matter the students used concept mapping strategy or not before the class, they will have confidence in the oral peer-tutoring activities when the students do reflection activities every time they end the oral peer-tutoring. However, if the students did not used reflection strategy, the students using concept mapping strategy in pre-study had higher confidence than the students who did not used concept mapping strategy when they prepared before the class.
