Web-Based Science Learning as Innovative Instruction

Abstract

There are so many mediums of technology, which is radically redefined in order to obtain communication and change the view of teaching and learning. The widespread use of the World Wide Web (www) extended the capacity of the different educational institutions involved in training to extend the possibilities of e-learning. There are a lot of challenging points in the dynamic and challenging field of e-learning. The use of the internet to bridge the digital divide is one of the challenges which are experienced by different educational institutions in the country. This study aimed to determine the possibility of a web-based learning in teaching science subjects specifically in the Senior High School. Innovative instruction applied three (3) different teaching approaches namely: Inquiry-based, Problem-based, and Project-based. Benefits of this approaches have been cited by numerous proponents which include greater depth of understanding of concepts, broader knowledge base, improved communication and interpersonal/social skills, enhanced leadership skills, increased creativity, and improved writing skills. Most of the extent of utilization of web-based learning on this study along the different approaches in teaching science is highly effective. All remaining variables are noted to be effective. Improvement on the posttest result was obviously noted by means of using the web-based instruction. A significant difference in the pretest and posttest results along the different approaches was noted. Also, it was found out that there is a significant relationship between the post-test result and the different approaches that rejected the null hypothesis.
