Abstract

Generally speaking, learning or teaching requires time, particularly with physical movement. In this paper, we demonstrate an efficient way for students to learn skills by using sensors in a smartphone. Every smart phone has some type of sensors e.g. acceleration sensor, gyro sensor and so on. Our “Skill Self Learning System (SSLS)” can give feedback, results and evaluation of a student’s actual movement to his/her self immediately on the smart phone, which he/she is using. In this research we used SSLS for learning how to saw and plane. As a result of running simple tests, a group using SSLS could improve their skills as well as a group, which a teacher taught in person. According to the results, if students have learned the skills before an actual class, a teacher can teach skills in detail and support them interactively. Our method is beneficial for enhancing traditional vocational learning as well as for distance skill education, intelligent skill learning and teaching system.
