Development of Interaction Simulation Video for Enhancing Digital Empathy Skills


This study applies research and development design aimed creates an interactive simulation video that enhances digital empathy skills. There are two groups of participants. First, six experts in educational technology and digital empathy content were purposively selected. Second, 48 high school students were multi-stage sampling. The research instruments were (1) the evaluation form to check the quality of the interactive simulation video and (2) the digital empathy skill test to measure students of knowledge, practical, and attitudes. The data were analyzed using a mean, standard deviation, and percentage. There are three episodes of interactive simulation video. Episode 1, "I'm not afraid true...I'm really afraid it is not," is about spreading accurate information. Episode 2, "My Areas vs. Your Areas," is about respect for rights and emotional control. Episode 3, "Fun Post…Miserable," is about posting information creatively and politely. Each episode consists of three types of interactions; overlay elements, embedded questions, and hotspots. Based on the expert’s evaluation, all episodes of interactive simulation videos are quality at the highest level in all aspects (content, video media, and interaction). Episode 1 had an average of quality 4.66 (S.D. = 0.52). Episode 2 had an average of quality 4.67 (S.D. = 0.52). Episode 3 had an average of quality 4.74 (S.D. = 0.44). The score of the digital empathy skills that students took after study on the interactive simulation video was 93.11% (knowledge 90.00%, practice 96.67%, attitude 92.67%). Thus, interactive simulation videos are effective in enhancing students' digital empathy skills.
