Abstract

Previous research has found that in many cases, paper-based materials are better tools than digital-based products for learning and memorizing words. However, the advantage of digital media is that functions can be easily added. In this paper, we demonstrate a new digital system for memorizing words that is connected to the real world for each word. The use of this system is based on taking photos in daily life. The system detects the squares in the photo taken, and the square becomes the space for a word. We present a design and an evaluation using a mock-up of the system.
