A growing number of educational studies apply sensors to improve student learning in real classroom settings. However, how can sensors be integrated into classrooms to help instructors find out students' reading concentration rates and thus better increase learning effectiveness? The aim of the current study was to develop a reading concentration monitoring(More)
Recent fMRI studies comparing the processing of alphabetic versus logographic scripts provide evidence for shared and orthography-specific regions of neural activity. The present study used near-infrared spectroscopy to compare (within and across brain regions) the time course of neural activation for these two distinct orthographies. Native readers of(More)
Most of the previous studies on mobile learning focused on using PDAs or cell phones to create situated learning contexts that enable students to learn anytime and anywhere, so as to increase their learning interest and motivation. However, some researchers have noted that the learning performance may be disappointing if such devices are used for situated(More)
Phonological density refers to the number of words that can be generated by replacing a phoneme in a target word with another phoneme in the same position. Although the precise nature of the phonological neighborhood density effect is not firmly established, many behavioral psycholinguistic studies have shown that visual recognition of individual words is(More)
Facebook, the most popular social networking site, has recently been applied in a wide variety of fields for educational purposes. The social network site provides some social features such as communication methods, individual profiles, and personal posts that are shared with friends. Although learners can obtain lots of knowledge and improve their learning(More)
Peng and Nisbett (1999) claimed that members of Asian cultures show a greater preference than Euro-Americans for proverbs expressing paradox (so-called dialectical proverbs; e.g., Too humble is half proud). The present research sought to replicate this claim with the same set of stimuli used in Peng and Nisbett's Experiment 2 and a new set of dialectical(More)
