Blended Learning Makes Science Alive
Blended learning is effective in science education at high school levels and activities in science textbooks should be adapted and designed according to blended learning, according to a study done by researchers at College of Humanities and Sciences, Ajam Univeristy, UAE. The study was conducted in over 112 ninth grade students in UAE using a quasi-experimental approach of which 51 were in control group. They were taught motion using traditional teaching methods while the experimental group were put on blended learning mode. The pre-test and post-test scores of both the groups were evaluated. It was found that there was significant different difference in understanding and knowledge of science subjects between the experimental and control groups showing that blended learning had a positive impact on students. Students in experimental group had positive attitudes towards blended learning.
