Public perception of ‘early English education’ through an analysis of social media big data: Focusing on YouTube
Kwon, Eun-Young

Abstract

The present study was intended to explore the Korean public’s perceptions of ‘early English education’ through an analysis of social media big data. For this purpose, texts containing the phrase ‘early English education’ from YouTube were extracted and analyzed by employing network, frequency, and semantic analyses. The study revealed that (1) The Korean public with interest in early English education seems to be more keen in effective ways to execute the learning (e.g., place and/or agent of the early English education) than useful educational activities and programs; (2) ‘English with Mom!’ is currently leading the trend of ‘early English education’ in Korea, substituting the place for ‘Geese fathers’; and (3) The results of the LDA modeling show that the majority of the selected YouTube clips on ‘early English education’ in the study concern the background information and/or updated news on early English education, indicating that the Korean public desires a consistent government policy on this issue as agreed upon by both education authorities and researchers. Finally, the present study offered implications of educational policies for successful implementation of ‘early English education,’ as well as future research directions derived from the results of the study.

Keywords:
