ABKD: Multi-media Mobile Game for Collaborative Learning of Chinese Hanzi Characters

Michael B. Syson, Ma. Regina E. Estuar, Ph.D., Karl T. See


This paper discusses the use of ABKD, a multimodal mobile learning game that aims to help Filipino children and young adults remember and increase their Chinese Hanzi and Japanese Kanji vocabularies by engaging them in a collaborative game-like group activity and challenging their creativity and imagination through drawing, taking pictures, and audio recording. Feedback from language learners after playing the game reveals that ABKD has the potential to make learning and remembering Hanzi characters easier, more fun, and more interesting.
