Handheld Electronic Dictionaries (ED) are becoming popular in Japanese schools. On the other hand, there are still some teachers who doubt the efficacy of an ED and recommend the use of paper dictionaries (PD).

In this JALT presentation, the speaker will review some past comparative studies of ED and PD, and analyze the effect of dictionary interfaces on English language learning.
