SMART Measuring Device: Utility Model for School Laboratories

Abstract

This utility model helped to addressed the challenges in the insufficiency of laboratory apparatus in schools and improved the quality teaching of science curriculum through technology-aided device. There are thirty-nine (39) respondents consist of thirty (30) students, six (6) teachers and three (3) random engineers served as respondents of the study. Data were gathered through the use of researcher-made validated questionnaire comprised of (I) Checklist to test the content and instructional and technical quality and (II) open-ended questions to be answered by the students for their experiences while using the utility model. The statistic tools used were mean and standard deviation for descriptive statistics. Experiences of students were analyzed and synthesized in a thematic analysis. Results revealed that the present status of supply and devices in science laboratories were all inadequate or less equipped. Also, the developed utility model for school laboratory was “very acceptable” in terms of content and instructional and technical quality. Furthermore, the experiences of the students focused on how the utility model was used during the conduct of the activity. It measures the volume, weight and density properly and accurately, and in an interesting, very convenient, efficient, and specific manner. In which, positive feedbacks on the experiences of the students in using SMART Measuring Device was met.
