Description

This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of computer-based interactive simulations in learning of the basic concepts of electricity. It also intended to measure the students’ attitudes toward Physics lessons and experiments before and after being exposed in activities involving computer-based technology. The respondents of this study are the Grade 8 students of Nagbinlod High School during the school year 2018-2019. The researcher utilized descriptive-correlational method of research and employed validated questionnaires that identified performance of students and measured their attitudes toward Physics lessons and experiments. The statistical tools used in this study included mean, t-test for dependent data, weighted mean and Mann-Whitney U Test. The study revealed that there was an increase of performance after students are being involved in activities using computer-based simulations. It was also found out that the attitudes of students toward Physics lessons and experiments increased after being exposed to interactive simulation activities. Moreover, there was a significant relationship between the post-test results of students and their attitudes toward Physics lessons in the topic “resistance in a wire”.
