Dr. Ting Ting Wu, an Associate Professor and Director in Graduate School of Technological and Vocational Education at Taiwan Yunlin University of Science and Technology gave an online lecture on application research of e-book to faculty and students of the Department of Educational Technologies of Nanjing Normal University on June 5, 2020. She presented PowerPoint slides to audience using zoom application and the topic of her lecture was “Application Research of E-book: Combining e-books with mind mapping in a reciprocal teaching strategy for a classical Chinese course.”
Dr. Ting Ting Wu explained about current research on e-books, classical Chinese texts reading, mind mapping and reciprocal teaching strategies. She also pointed out research gap of this field which she aimed to address in her study. After that, she presented her research method and design and reported the results. It was interesting to see that there was no difference in reading comprehension outcomes between students with and without intervention (i.e. e-book). However, learners with intervention were more willing to share knowledge with their peers compared with learners in the control group. As a result, learners enhanced their cognitive capacities for analysis and evaluation.
