Kolesnikova, Iryna V.
World Journal of Education, v6 n6 p51-59 2016
The search for the best approach to business education has led educators and researchers to seek many different teaching strategies, ranging from the traditional teaching methods to various experimental approaches such as active learning techniques. The aim of this experimental study was to compare the effects of the traditional and combined (traditional plus active learning) teaching methods in the process of knowledge formation among future primary school teachers. Participants were randomly selected from available Ukrainian 5th year students. After they were pre-tested, randomly divided into two equal groups. The participants in the experimental group were instructed through combined teaching methods, while those in the control group were only taught through traditional lecture. Following the completion of the course, both groups were received their post-test. The results of both groups were equal at the beginning of experiment. An investigation on the post-test indicated that both teaching methods increased the students' post-test scores significantly. Also, the result of post-test scores in the experimental group increased statistically significant than that the control group. This study concluded that active learning plus the traditional teaching method is a feasible alternative to the traditional teaching method only format.
