Abstract
In this study, a “Sound Unit” from secondary school science courses was provided to eighth grade students in accordance with the curriculum using different methods and techniques, and effects of these methods on student achievement were investigated. A quasi-experimental study design with pre- and post-testing on one control and three experimental groups was used in the study. Lessons were taught to the students in these three experimental groups using computer-assisted teaching techniques including animation and videos (N=35), laboratory activities (N=34) and both computer-assisted teaching techniques and laboratory activities (N=30). Traditional teaching methods included in the current program were used with the students in the control group (N=34). The implementation took a total of 12 hours (four hours each week for three weeks). An achievement test consisting of 43 questions developed by the researcher was administered to all groups before and after the implementation as the pre- and post-tests. Based on the results, the students in the computer + laboratory group and those in the laboratory group were significantly more successful than those in the control group. The computer + laboratory group was the most successful group. Comparisons of pre- and post-test results revealed a significant increase in student success for all groups. The results of this study suggest that having the most successful students in the computer + laboratory group was due to the learning by doing and living and the enriched teaching activities.
