Learn to Teach Chemistry Using Visual Media Tools
Turkoguz, Suat
Chemistry Education Research and Practice, v13 n4 p401-409 2012
The aim of this study was to investigate undergraduate students' attitudes to using visual media tools in the chemistry laboratory. One hundred and fifteen undergraduates studying science education at Dokuz Eylul University, Turkey participated in the study. They video-recorded chemistry experiments with visual media tools and assessed them on a social website. A Likert scale consisting of 29 items was developed to obtain the students' views on using visual media tools in the chemistry laboratory. The scale has a four-factor structure. The Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficient was 0.95. In conclusion, this study found that using visual media tools in the general chemistry laboratory provides a positive contribution to students' behaviours and skills, improves students' learning attitudes to chemistry laboratory courses and increases their interest in visual media tools. The students also showed positive attitudes to the applicability of such tools. (Contains 2 tables.)
