Abstract:


This paper presents a comparison of the levels of interactivity in the learning of the 26 letters of the English alphabet between using a learning package, AlphabetStory, and YouTube learning videos. A child, aged four, was observed on the ways she learned the English alphabet using AlphabetStory. Concurrently, the child was shown five popular English alphabet learning videos from YouTube. The results show that AlphabetStory is more effective than YouTube videos for learning the English alphabet. It also has an interesting matching game, and an exercise pad that allows children to practise writing the 26 letters of the English alphabet.
