Abstract

A mobile-assisted game to assist young learners in developing the knowledge of the structures of Chinese characters was developed. In playing the “Chinese-PP” game in a 1:1 (one-device-per-student) setting, each of the 31 target students in Primary 3 (9-year-old) was assigned a Chinese character component in her smartphone. A student may use her own and peers’ character components to form a legitimate Chinese character, and invite the peers with matching components to join her group. We analyze relationships between the students with varied learning styles and their game behaviors and learning gains and conclude that all the students achieved high learning gains regardless of their learning and game playing profiles.
