摘要

Although computers and network technology have been widely utilised to assist students learn, few technical supports have been developed to help hearing-impaired students learn in Taiwan. A significant challenge for teachers is to provide after-class learning care and assistance to hearing-impaired students that sustain their motivation to participate in continuous learning activities. However, lacking an effective communication channel, teachers cannot easily provide after-class learning care or instruction to sustain student motivation. This study developed a learning support system to provide after-class learning care through smart phones and the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) network. Student reactions identified effective strategies regarding student-teacher interaction while teachers utilised the wireless network and handheld devices to provide learning support. Questionnaire results demonstrated that most students and their parents considered student-teacher interaction and strategies through GPRS and smart phones effective in improving student learning at home.
