Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of using electronic books (e-books) on elementary students’ English vocabulary learning and their English learning attitude. Sixty-one third graders were divided into self-control (SC) group and teacher-control (TC) group. While reading, the process of SC group was controlled by the students and the reading process of TC group was controlled by the teacher. Both groups read four same stories on the computers. After each story, a posttest on English vocabulary was conducted to examine their vocabulary learning. Besides, a scale of English learning attitude was conducted to the two groups before and after their e-book reading courses. The main findings showed that the TC group performed significantly better than the SC group in English vocabulary learning. Two groups both showed the positive attitude toward the e-book reading.
