Abstract

This presentation is to investigate the effectiveness of integrating many IT related teaching materials and tools such as Prontest software, with the help of mobile learning tools like i-Pod and mobile phones. The CASEC (Computer English Test) was used to assess the overall English proficiency as a pre-test in April and as a post-test in July. After the first semester, the progress of CASEC was measured. 60 students used software called ‘Hatsuon Ryoku’ for 30 minutes while the rest of the 90-minute lesson was spent on studying World Heritage with particular emphasis on PowerPoint presentation and practiced digital Storytelling. The study concluded that the average score of CASEC improved from 532(SD92.8) in April to 583(SD 77.3) in July after having used this software. The differences of parameters between pre and post-recorded readings indicated that using this software helped students to improve English pronunciation and overall English proficiency.
