Çetin, Ali
Online Submission, Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology spec iss p239-243 Dec 2016
This qualitative study was designed to introduce 3-dimensional and digital materials to pre-service science teachers and identify their views about them. In this context, three projects was performed with 42 pre-service science teachers (13 male-29 female) who took Instructional Technologies and Material Development course in Elementary Science Education Department in Siirt University. First project was to prepare a movie by using photos and music, second one was to prepare a power-point presentation that contains an animation and their own sound and third one was a 3 dimensional material that can be used during class time. Four open ended questions were asked to all participants to obtain their views about these materials. The results were analyzed with the conventional content analysis. Results indicated that most of the participants believe that the digital material prepared in project 1 enhance retention and take students' attention. In project two, participants thought that the digital material facilitates learning and save class time for teacher. In project 3, while 78% of participants thought positive for the 3 dimensional materials and claim that they facilitate learning and enhance retention, 22% of participants thought negative about these materials and claim that preparing these materials need too much time and effort. In the last finding, "which type of material are preferred by pre-service science teachers in their future life" were asked and 57 % preferred 3 dimensional materials, 19 % preferred digital materials and 24 % preferred both.
