Andraž Simon (2012) Development of a Spelling Book for Android Mobile Platform. EngD thesis.
The number of mobile devices and their users is increasing on day to day basis. Games and other multimedia contents on smart phones and tablets raised children's attention on a large scale. Primary schools could trigger the pupils’ interest by learning also through new, interesting, and playful methods. In the thesis, an application for mobile devices with Android operating system which enables exercises in spelling is presented. There are several possibilities of problem-solving; the most interesting includes the use of accelerometer where tilting of the device makes content to move on the screen. Besides spelling book, a website is also available for users to exercise and for teachers to make new exercises. Therefore, it is also taken care of those who do not have an appropriate mobile device. Using text saving formats set in advance, teachers can create exercises which will trigger more attention of children.
