Crescent Girls' School (SINGAPORE)
Meta-analysis on technology has documented positive effects on teaching and learning with technology enabling students to be motivated and perform better in the relevant field of study. This paper examines the impact of Interactive Digital Media (IDM) in a 1-1 computing, campus-wide wireless environment on the achievements and motivated strategies for learning among Grade Eight students at Crescent Girls’ School after undergoing Integrated Curriculum, involving English Language, English Literature and History. IDM-enabled technologies such as Discussion Forums, Blogs, Google Docs and other Web 2.0 tools were employed in teaching and learning for the experimental group to engage students in collaborative work and co-construction of knowledge during the course of the programme. To evaluate the effectiveness of IDM-enabled tools in enhancing their learning, the achievements in the performance task done by the students in both experimental group (two classes) and control group (two classes) was analysed. An analysis on their motivation level and learning strategies before and after the intervention period was also conducted to review the differences between the two groups. Besides that, the relationship between achievement and Motivated Strategies for Learning was explored using the multiple regression model.
