Abstract

In traditional education, most of them are one-way that the teacher teaches and the students listen. In the process of improving the motivation of the traditional education and increasing learning opportunities, we propose building a participatory simulation mobile learning environment using the fundamental concepts in scaffolding and fading, called SPMLE (Scaffolding Participation simulation Mobile Learning). SPMLE can be seen as an extension of the traditional education. Using SPMLE, students learn the knowledge through participation in a mobile simulation and they are brought through a scaffolded process. Making use of SPMLE, we implemented and evaluated two prototype systems, one is ALGOS and the other is JAPELAS. The result proved the effectiveness of SPMLE, and it showed that SPMLE can improve the motivation of the traditional education. From the evaluation, we found that these two systems strongly effect the improvement of the traditional education.
