layout for language acquisition; cultural differences
Although, more work may have been effected recently, I have the
impression that not enough research has been effected on screen lay-out
What is the best screen lay-out of data for language
acquisition? What colours, fonts, windows, multi-media inputs, etc.
enhance most (or detract from) the cognitive process. Does the cultural
background of the user lead to different reactions? Does the employment
of ‘western-style’ screen lay-out do a disservice to learners from
other cultures? Are we using the optimum lay-out in the West?
Testing of various lay-outs on a local basis and then
comparing results with those obtained from international groups. One
could, to begin, aim to compare western/European with Chinese/Japanese
