Examining Students’ Acceptance of using Google Forms as Lesson Playlists in Physical Science

Salvador John M. Magalong

 

Abstract:

This study aims to examine students’ technology acceptance of using Google Forms as Lesson Playlists in understanding Physical Science concepts based on the principle of constructivism and conversation theories. To examine the level of of acceptance of this technology, a 7-point Likert-type inventory test called Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is used, which is considered as the most widely used framework in the field of Information Systems (IS) for measuring technology acceptance and was proven to be of high validity in different studies 1. Moreover, Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is an information systems model theory that explains how users come to accept the use of technology. This study is conducted on 103 students under the Accountancy, Business and Management strand of De La Salle Santiago Zobel School. Results of the study revealed that students found the use of GForms easy to use in terms of Perceived Ease of Use (PEOU), useful in studying science concepts when it comes to Perceived Usefulness (PU), a good idea to use in class works in terms of Attitude Towards Use (ATU) and intend to still use in other topics in terms of Intention to Use (ITU). Furthermore, most of the participants claimed that lessons presented using Playlists have encouraged them to think on their own and have helped increase their interest toward usage.
