Study evaluation

  1. 1. Summary Of An Evaluation Study Of Educational Technology Study 1: Evaluation methodology usedDone by: Dalal Al-Dhafari83486 TECH 4102
  2. 2. Study Title: "A Study of Individual Learning Styles And Educational Multimedia Preferences"  Researcher: Denice Byrne, School of Computer Applications, Dublin City University, Ireland, June 2002 This study investigates into relationships between Individual Learning Styles and Online Multimedia learning resources, used in online environment (WebCT). The study tested in a small group, with 31 male students "Apprentice Electricians".
  3. 3. Study Purpose: This research project is aimed to testing the following:  First,the research aimed to determine if there are a relationship between individuals learning style and their preferential use of online multimedia learning resources.  The second, the research examined the self- directed use of the multimedia WebCT course by students to understand the abstract concepts to find out if the difference in performance scores decreased.
  4. 4. Study Instrument: This research used online and paper questionnaires like a VARK questionnaire and an Index of Learning Styles (ILS) questionnaire.  VARK questionnaire (VARK- Visual, Aural, Read/Write and Kinesthetic, this model facilitate Multimodal-learning styles for those learners with more than one preference.)  An Index of Learning Styles (ILS) questionnaire (formulate learning style model with dimensions that should be particularly relevant to science education).

  7. 7. Study Title: A REVIEW OF RESEARCH ON PROJECT-BASED LEARNING  Done by: John W. Thomas, Ph. D  This review examines research related to a teaching and learning model popularly referred to as "Project-Based Learning" (PBL).
  8. 8. Study Purpose: Research can be undertaken in order to  make judgments about the effectiveness of PBL (summative evaluation),  assess or describe the degree of success associated with implementation or enactment of Project-Based Learning (formative evaluation),  assess the role of student characteristic factors in PBL effectiveness or appropriateness (aptitude-treatment interactions), or  test some proposed feature or modification of Project- Based Learning (intervention research).
  9. 9. Technology Features: PBL help students learn how to learn. PBL are enhanced professionalism and collaboration on the part of teachers and increased attendance, self-reliance, and improved attitudes towards learning on the part of students. PBL seems to be equivalent or slightly better than other models of instruction for producing gains in general academic achievement and for developing lower-level cognitive skills in traditional subject matter areas.
  10. 10. Technology Features: PBL has value for enhancing the quality of students learning in subject matter areas, leading to the tentative claim that learning higher-level cognitive skills via PBL is associated with increased capability on the part of students for applying those learnings in novel, problem-solving contexts. PBL is an effective method for teaching students complex processes and procedures such as planning, communicating, problem solving, and decision making.
