Abstract:The literature into the effectiveness of mobile language learning applications on language outcomes remains scarce. In the current research, we sought to determine whether experimentally validated mobile applications for language acquisition exist and what learning principles could contribute to optimal learning with mobile applications. We conducted a meta-analysis on the current experimental literature assessing learning outcomes while using mobile-based language applications. We found a strong overall effec…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
