Hasenekoglu, Ismet; Timucin, Melih
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology (IETC) Conference (7th, Nicosia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, May 3-5, 2007)
The aim of this study is to collect and evaluate opinions of CAI experts and biology teachers about a high school level Computer Assisted Biology Instruction Material presenting computer-made modelling and simulations. It is a case study. A material covering "Nucleic Acids and Protein Synthesis" topic was developed as the "case". The goal of the material is modelling relevant terms and phenomena. Having formed the material, then expert opinions were asked for technical and teacher opinions for educational assessment. Research data were collected via: An Assessment Scale for Experts, An Assessment Scale for Teachers and A Teacher Interview. Data on Assessment Scales were evaluated by determining percentage-frequencies and material proved adequate both in educational and structural point of view. Both qualifying and quantifying Teacher and Expert assessments about the software on "Nucleic Acids and Protein Synthesis" were positive. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
