The Effects of a Task Based Instructıon (TBI) Software For Teaching Vocabulary to Young Learners

Özge Kutlu, PhD candidate (Turkey)


Due to the increasing demands to use technological tools in education, many institutions around the world seek for a program which can be utilized in the  teaching processes. Because of this situation, language teachers face with difficulties while satisfying the needs of their students regarding technological tools. On this aspect, the combination of an approach with a technological tool may yield fruitful results. As an approach, it has been found out that TBI can provide a different experience for young learners (Carless, 2000). In another study, Butler and Zeng (2013) highlighted the interactional patterns that are available thanks to task based assessment. For this purpose, the the study is going to create a task based instruction experience for young learners who are 4th grades of a primary school in Turkey. For the implentation of such an experience, the researcher is going to create a task based course in line with the class. The researcher is going to use such a task in one of the classrooms (experimental), and the other classroom (control) is going to continue to use their own syllabus. In addition to obtaining the statistical data, the researcher is also going to ask for the comments of the students in order to gather qualitative data.
