Acceptability of Messenger Chatbot “MASCIYA” as a Digital Interactive Teaching-Learning Material in General Biology 1

Abstract

The world was halted in March 2020 due to the Corona Virus Disease - 2019 Pandemic. It made the students take their classes in isolation. That is why the Department of Education offered two main modes of instruction – online and modular. While they both have their pros, they are not perfect. Online classes require large data that is expensive; modular lessons might be cheaper, but it lacks the interaction that a student needs to have meaningful learning. The researcher explored a midground where we can have interactive learning without needing an expensive plan. The Artificial Intelligence-enabled Messenger Chatter Robot is a learning material that can be used anytime and anywhere, even if students are only on free data. The researcher developed the material and sought whether such material is a good digital interactive teaching-learning resource. To do this, he sourced his respondents (students, Science Teachers, Principals, Head Teachers, Coordinators, Professors, and Information Technology - related persons) from various educational institutions all over the provinces of Isabela and Nueva Vizcaya using stratified purposive sampling. To triangulate the result, the researcher utilized four tools: Educational Soundness General Evaluation Checklist, Evaluation Rating Sheet for Non-Print Materials, Technology Acceptance Model - based Checklist, Chatbot Usability Questionnaire, and 7 Characteristics of a Good Chatbot. Overall, this research has found that the Messenger Chatter Robot is acceptable as a digital interactive teaching-learning material in General Biology 1 by the three main groups of this study.
