Abstract

Android is now a popular technology and its rapid growth allow thousands of mobile application exist. This has shown by survey conducted by Northcraft (2014) resulting Android has taken over the market worldwide. This means there are huge number of users are devices using this platform. This could bring an opportunity for education field to be expanded into mobile learning especially for the young age. Children are influenced to multimedia material (Latifah, 2012) and this could be accomplish through application created for Android. According to the Kamus Dewan Bahasa Edisi Keempat, child stands for little boy or girl who is still small (usually younger than 7 or 8 years old). Children development rate are faster than stages or levels of older age in one's life. Therefore, it is essential to equip them with basis of knowledge in reading. Phonics is a technique used to teach children to read and master alphabetic. It is based on sound of the alphabets that when the sound combines, it would form a sound of word. Studies have shown that the brain is reading by breaking words that is seen into the sound, then the brain sounding that particular letters by pronounce or read the word (Othman, n. d. ). Phonics has been used widely for English reading. The purpose of this study is to create a prototype as an Android application to expand phonics learning method in learning Malay reading for the children from 4 to 6 years old where the learning is not just happening at school but also at other place such as home. For the prototype testing, observation and interview had been conducted for children range between 4 to 6 years old with their guardian. This prototype still can be enhance in future work and covers any limitation that has been found during testing and implementation. The proposed work is hopefully can be used in real life implementation as one of a way to for the children learn to read in Malay language despite of location and time.
