Blooket, Teaching of English as a Second Language (TESL), Trainee Teachers’ Perceptions


Teaching English language using traditional methods is no longer sufficient for students in the 21st century. As a result, teachers must develop new and innovative educational methods. This study aims to investigate the perceptions of trainee teachers majoring in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) at the Institutes of Teacher Education Malaysia (ITEMs) on the use of the game- based platform (i.e., Blooket) in the online English language teaching and learning process. Trainee teachers are now familiar with game-based learning, thanks to the exposure to a variety of technological teaching aids during their teacher training. This survey research was conducted with a focus on TESL trainee teachers’ beliefs, attitudes, and thoughts. The study employed simple random sampling to gather data from 201 TESL trainee teachers of the June 2018 intake from five ITEMs in Malaysia. The results indicate that TESL trainee teachers have a favorable view of Blooket in terms of beliefs, attitudes, and thoughts regarding its implementation in the online English language teaching and learning process.
