A Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Google Solution on Middle School Teacher and Student Based on the Kirkpatrick 4 Level Model


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of Google Solution (GS) on the application of classes. Participants were 17 teachers and 115 students of 'O' middle school in Busan, and the period was from April to September for five months. As a treatment, each teacher was given a Chromebook equipped with Google OS, and six individual GS coaching programs were provided during this period. To evaluate the effectiveness of GS, modified Kirkpatrick model was applied and constructed into four evaluation stages of reaction, learning, behavior, and outcome. For research, mixed research was designed, and online survey, online interview, and field observation were used as research methods. For data analysis, paired t-test was used for quantitative analysis, and for qualitative analysis, three PhDs in instructional technology and two graduate students cross-reviewed interview and field observation data. The results are as follows. According to the modified Kirkpatrick model, the effect of GS was significant in the areas of reaction (class satisfaction), learning (skill utilization ability), and behavior (collaborative learning), but no statistically significant results were found in the results (entrepreneurship). However, at least significant improvements in reaction, learning, and behavior have been proven to be effective in improving teaching effectiveness in the classroom. The limitation of research is that GS coaching programs focused only on using smart devices and software as a treatment, suggesting that support such as education as well as devices and software should be provided when applying the edge technology to the classroom.
