概要 Tracking language study is something that is not often done with language learners, yet it can be a very powerful tool when used for self-regulated language learning. First-year university students were asked to try digital and paper trackers over the course of a school year to record both required language study (homework) and independent language study. In the first semester, students used a simple digital tracker made with an online survey program which could be saved as an app on their smartphones, and in the second semester, they were asked to use a more comprehensive paper tracker. This poster will examine both the quantitative and qualitative results from the students' use of the trackers, including how well and how often the students used the trackers, the type of study they chose to record in their trackers, as well as their impressions of both the usefulness and ease of use of the trackers. Generally speaking, the results show positive engagement with both types of trackers, and digital trackers were used more frequently than the paper trackers. However, the overall consensus was that the paper trackers had a stronger effect on the students' language learning awareness and habits.
