Abstract

Differences in cultural and the convenience of obtaining information expose a significant difference in the effectiveness of learning between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. Indigenous students frequently misunderstand the content and examples provided by the teachers, and cultural constraint is an important factor in learning. This study created a new learning system with information technology for Indigenous students. We established and integrated indigenous culture into a cloud-based Indigenous elementary school e-learning system. Students can read e-books online and study new vocabularies with teachers' explanations. Moreover, students can engage in exercises after completing very segment of a whole lesson. After finishing the course, students take an examination for evaluating the learning effects. All examples used in the e-books match the students' culture and lifestyle and can facilitate their understanding of the contents. We administered the test teaching course at 4 aboriginal elementary schools and found that the average score has improved significantly(p
