Screen-Capture Instructional Technology: A Cognitive Tool for Blended Learning
Smith, Jeffrey George
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Saint Mary's College of California
Little empirical investigation has been conducted on high school students and teachers using online instructional multimedia developed entirely from the classroom teacher's traditional live-lecture format. This study investigated academic achievement, engagement, preference, and curriculum development using screen-capture instructional technology. A 2-group experimental pretest-posttest was deployed over a four week period on secondary Algebra students accessing their teacher's screen-capture instructional multimedia both inside and outside of the blended classroom. Students who learned Algebra through the screen-capture methodology showed significantly greater gains in math performance than did the students in a live-lecture class, even after controlling for prior levels of math performance. On average, students viewed each online instructional multimedia lesson two and a half times within the classroom using mobile multimedia devices and an additional one and a half times at home. Additionally, a psychometric student engagement instrument (SEI) measured the participant's cognitive and psychological engagement. The screen-capture students demonstrated increased levels of cognitive engagement from their self-regulated learning and added psychological engagement from feeling less inhibited when asking their classroom teacher face-to-face questions. Ninety-three percent of the students indicated their preference for learning Algebra in the future using their teacher's screen-capture instructional multimedia. During the initial lesson development phase, the classroom teacher incorporated the instructional technology as a new tool to evaluate her Algebra instruction and also discovered the online component as an instrument for collaborating with a fellow classroom teacher. This study suggests that a teacher's screen-capture instructional technology can be used toward establishing a blended learning environment within the secondary classroom.
