Wilfredo B. Baniqued | Claude Zephrix D. Ariston

 

Abstract:

Time management is crucial, and it may affect an individual’s overall performance. The Pomodoro technique is a time management method designed by Francisco Cirillo in 1992 using a tomato timer. It is believed that this method helps people use time flexibly and effectively, which improves one’s work or learning efficiency. This study was designed to determine the effectiveness of the Pomodoro technique in reshaping the Grade 10 science students’ time management. This study employed an adopted questionnaire centered on factors associated with time management and can be classified as Time Planning, Time Attitudes, and Time Wasting. Further, utilizing the one-group pretest-posttest research design, it was found out that POMODORO had a significant effect on the respondents’ time planning, an enormous impact on their time attitude, and a substantial impact on their time-wasting. It is concluded that the POMODORO technique is a potential mechanism in improving an observable mood that uses productivity and time management.
