Mustafa AKİLLİ [1] , Sabriye SEVEN [2]


Bu çalışmada, 3D (üç boyutlu) bilgisayar modellerinin Modern Fizik dersi “Atomun Yapısı” ünitesi çerçevesinde Fen Bilgisi Eğitimi 2. Sınıf öğrencilerinin akademik başarılarına, üç boyutlu düşünebilme ve uzamsal canlandırabilme yeteneklerinin artmasına etkisi araştırılmıştır. Çalışmanın örneklemini, Fen Bilgisi Eğitimi Anabilim Dalında öğrenim gören ikinci sınıflar oluşturmaktadır. Atomun Yapısı ünitesindeki uygulamaya 34’ü Deney, 33’ü Kontrol Grubunu oluşturacak şekilde toplam 67 öğrenci katılmıştır. Araştırmanın deseni, yarı-deneysel ön test–son test kontrol gruplu modele göre dizayn edilmiştir. Araştırmada, verilerin toplanması amacıyla Akademik Başarı Testi (ABT) ve Uzamsal Canlandırma Testi (UCT) kullanılmıştır. Verilerin analizi için tanımlayıcı istatistikler, karşılaştırma testleri ve kullanılan 3D bilgisayar modellerinin etkilerini hesaplamak amacıyla etki büyüklüğü değerleri hesaplanmıştır. Sonuç olarak, 3D bilgisayar modelleri kullanılarak gerçekleştirilen öğretimin, öğrencilerin akademik başarılarını ve üç boyutlu düşünebilme ve uzamsal canlandırma yeteneklerini arttırdığı görülmüştür.
In this study, it was aimed that is there any effect of 3D computer models on students’ academic achievement and three dimensional thinking and spatial ability. The sample of study consist of 67 second year science education students who attended as Experimental and Control Group in which the unit of Structure of Atom, were taught Primary Science Education Department. Study was grounded on semi-experimental design method. As the data collection instruments, Academic Achievement Test (AAT) and Spatial Visualization Test (SVT) were used. The data obtained on instruments were evaluated by using descriptive statistics, compare tests and effect size. The results of the study indicate that 3D computer models are more effective than traditional teaching method on increasing students’ academic achievement and improving their and spatial abilities.
