|摘要:||本研究旨在結合行動科技無所不在的優點，開發一套新版支援實習教師的行動系統（Adaptive Support System Initiated for Student Teachers，ASSIST），以輔助實習教師於教育實習的工作與學習。本研究者在系統開發階段，先回顧師資培育相關文獻以及訪談實習教師，瞭解使用者需求，歸納出三項新功能：個人筆記、教學教案、教師檢定；接著規劃設計準則、工作分析和介面設計，完成系統雛型開發。
This study utilized characteristics of mobile technology to develop a new version of a mobile system, the Adaptive Support System Initiated for Student Teachers (ASSIST), to support student teachers’ work and learning. To conduct the needs analysis, the author reviewed relevant literature and interviewed student teachers and, finally, the author proposed three new functions of the ASSIST: personal notepads, lesson plans, and teacher-certification testing preparation. According to results of the needs analysis, the author concluded design guidelines, conducted task analysis, and developed the interface prototype of the new ASSIST. To evaluate the usability of the system prototype, methods including think aloud, questionnaires, interviews, and observations were employed to collect data. The evaluation consists of expert evaluation and user testing. In the expert evaluation, three experts provided suggestions regarding interface display, system operations, photo records, and online help. Twelve student teachers participated in the user testing, and they raised issues regarding layout design, message display, and taking pictures with mobile devices. Moreover, according to results of the QUIS questionnaires of the two-stage evaluation, the expert evaluation did help the author improve the interface design of the ASSIST, and the student teachers considered the ASSIST highly usable but they also indicated the ASSIST could be further improved. This study suggests that the ASSIST include functions such as various types of teacher-certification testing preparation, answer explanation, and reply reminders of the message board. The future research should apply the ASSIST to student teaching to understand how to foster student teachers’ willingness to use the ASSIST so student teachers can benefit from using the system.
