The Importance of Positive Discipline Approach in Making Students Gain Multimedia Course Content
Özan, Mukadder Boydak
Educational Research and Reviews, v10 n3 p320-327 Feb 2015
In this study, the importance of multimedia contents for effective learning, effective classroom management and building behaviors within the framework of positive discipline approach was emphasized. A questionnaire consisting of 24 items, whose validity and reliability were established, was prepared. The questionnaire was administered to 1474 students from three randomly-selected primary schools situated in the five educational regions in the city center of Elazig. The gender of the students was considered. As a result of statistical operations carried out, both male and female students agree that multimedia contents contribute positively to effective learning. Even though students of both genders agree with the views concerning classroom management, low results suggest that there are some problems in fulfilling the classroom rules in the classes where multimedia is utilized. It can be said that male students have more positive opinions about the effect of multimedia contents on building behaviors. In-service training courses can be organized for the teachers in respect of classroom management in the course environments where multimedia contents are utilized.
