In response to the digitalization of education and COVID-19, Mandarin language teaching is adapting to new classroom norms and blended learning. This study uses action research to assess the feasibility of using object-based digital materials on interactive whiteboards in Chinese language teaching. The study uses digital Chinese Pinyin materials compiled by Li Jirong (2022) and transformed via the mvViewBoard software. Participants are adult learners with no prior Chinese knowledge, from a Mandarin Learning Center at a university in Taiwan. The research involves classroom observation, video recording, and teaching notes to analyze how teachers use interactive materials to enhance classroom interaction and guide learners to master Chinese Pinyin quickly. Post-study, participants will complete a Likert scale feedback questionnaire. The results, analyzed using sequential analysis, lag sequential analysis, and Kappa test, will provide insights into learner outcomes, teacher-learner interaction, and interactive whiteboard usage, contributing to the field of digital Chinese language teaching.
