The current version of stellar-learning.app is focused on German-French / French-German translations. You are particularly to participate in our study if you are teaching French to native German speakers or if you are teaching German to native French speakers. Other languages will be added in the near future. Please contact us, if you are interested in participating, but teaching another language than German or French.
Expenditure of time
The overall duration of the project will be four years with three years of continuous data collection. We are mainly interested in classes who are interested in participating for the total duration of the study. However, it is also possible to participate for shorter durations, should you teach your class for only a year or two. Importantly, the study is designed to minimally disrupt teaching schedules.
Moreover, we have a team of professional scientists who are able to dedicate their full working time to the project. Thus, we are able to guarantee a high level of support during the entire duration of the study to make sure you can spend your precious time on more import things than configuring stellar-learning.app. That being said, will are happy to assist you that stellar-learning.app will present the vocabulary that you are wishing to teach. Moreover, there is always the possibility that you can add additional vocabulary according to your needs by means of a few clicks.
Option 1: You participate in the study by using the app
Using stellar-learning.app as part of your language classes enables us to investigate different mechanisms how language apps can support the acquisition of new vocabulary. Specifically, the app incoorporates established learning principles from cognitive science on learning and memory.
Option 2: You participate in the study without using the app
Participanting with your language classes without using the app enables us to compare academic achievements of classes which are using the app with classes which do not use the app. This comparison is critical to answer the question whether learning apps are beneficial beyond traditional learning approaches or if learning apps are even detrimental.
