Comparing Traditional and Computer Assisted Education in the Teaching of Colour to 6th Grade Students and Determination of Its Retention
Akengin, Gultekin
Educational Research and Reviews, v6 n5 p432-435 May 2011
In this study, informing 6th grade students on the subject of colour was taught using traditional and computer assisted education methods. Colour information was taught by the researcher for 5 weeks in order to specify the influence of both methods on students. The test, which was prepared at the beginning of the study and at the end of five-week programme, was given to the students, and pre-test and last-test results were reported. The permanence of the training has been determined by applying the same test again to the students two months later. According to the results of the research, it is determined that colour knowledge? ([x-bar] = 41.33) of the students receiving computer-assisted education is higher (t = 3.518; p less than 0.05) than the students receiving traditional education ([x-bar] = 35.70) and that this same high score is maintained in the retention test applied two months later. The scores of the retention of education by computer assisted and traditional methods are respectively ([x-bar] = 39.15) and ([x-bar] = 32.40), the difference between the scores of the groups is found to be statistically significant.
