Abstract

The Designs for Knowledge Evolution (DKE) model was originally proposed by Schwartz et al. (2005) in the domain of statistics learning. In this study, we examined the DKE model in the domain of second language (L2) learning. We applied the DKE model by having 1st and 2nd hand experiences of clicking on words and writing rules. Experimental design was implemented. We found that adding 2nd hand experience of writing rules improved learning. In addition, the findings also suggest that implementation of full DKE model by obtaining both 1st and 2nd hand experiences in our learning activity can eliminate the learning gap (with respect to L2 learning retention outcomes) between Easterners and Westerners.
