This paper discusses learning English for Economics Students by adapting adaptive technology. The learning process is implemented by adjusting the curriculum and educational infrastructure. Economics students at PGRI Argopuro University Jember have 25 students in Semester I of 2021. Economics students have difficulty understanding English lessons, especially in mastering vocabulary, completing assignments, and communicating. The research method used the Inastec’s adaptive technology innovation based on the internet of things (IoT) using application algorithms and hardware design schemes for the Raspberry Pi 3 B+. This research applies Inastec’s adaptive technology based on the internet of things to help economics students improve their English language skills, namely, Mastery of English vocabulary, complete assignments, and communicating with Inastec platform tools with text output and voice feedback on voice speakers.


Keywords: adaptive technology, vocabulary, internet of things, Raspberry.
