Strength :

1-hard-working attitude for presentation

2-more deeply discuss about game learning 

3-systematic thinking about PPT design

Weakness :

1-take care about your body before presentation 

2-some slide speak too fast 

Q : If you use this way to be your own future research teaching, what kind

of strategies you would use to catch student's attention ? 

:The delivery is natural and confident 
: The way the presenter shows audience Meth and result is really well.
:  Bonus for PPT designed in slide 13 and 20~25

Question: Are there any existed factors may affect the result during pretest and post -test?
 speak fluently 
 show confident
 nice suit

 over time 
 wrong title on slide 27
 it'll be better to be more familiar with the method part. 

Q: Who develop the tests in this study? Is it a standard test just like Cambridge English test for young learners?  Is it one of the limitations if the assessments were developed by themselves? 
Strength: a flently speech, professional dress code, excellent PPT
Weakness: intonation of speech, pay attention to the intonation after a "comma". Generally speaking, it should be
                 a rising intonation after a "comma".

3.        Confidence


1.        Incorrect date

2.        List the questions on slides would be better

3.        Wrong topic in slide 13

4.        No smile again


What are the distinctions in step 1 to 3 in procedure? In slide 14, if so, highlighting the differences in slide 21 to 23 would be better.

Question: In your opinion, why  the researcher do not have pilot study?

Rickie: The strategies is using mobile phone to catch students’ attention, that’s why I want to use this kind of teaching method.


Larua: I think the students’ talent of learning language would affect the result.


Patty: I’ve already rechecked the paper, I am pretty sure that the authors didn’t mention how the test developed, that’s absolutely a limitation of this study.


Betty: The only distinction is their learning materials. Experimental group used PDA phone always and control group used printed materials and audio CDs.


Anne: HELLO sever station is only a system of ubiquitous game. The system provides various games to catch student’s attention and make their learning motivation higher so that they can focus on the learning progress.


Ivy & Apple: No, the authors didn’t mention that they did the pilot study.


Amber: M-learning needs mobile phones, and I don’t think that every student can afford that to be their learning materials. E-learning focus on computer operating, I’m afraid that students’ handwriting skill would get worse.


Jessica: I can not be sure, I want to search more popular and standard station to choose what I really want to do!


Scott & Sabrina: I’m sorry that the authors didn’t focus on participants’ part, the authors didn’t mention about participants in detail L


Tim: The phone would be locked that students can only play games I apply, and they have to do a test after each class.


Debbie: The statistical method authors used is one-way ANOVA.


Adam: I’m still thinking about it, because I just want to do the pre-test and post-test.


Sharon: Responses to all questions were on a five point Likert-scale, from 5 for “strongly agree” to 1 for “strongly disagree.” The Cronbach's alpha for each sub-scale was 0.86, 0.87, 0.86, and 0.90, respectively, and for the survey was 0.91. These alpha coefficients exceeded 0.85, which confirmed the internal consistency of the survey.
