An Interactive Module for Pre-Service Teachers Teaching Grade 7 Science

Victor R. Oribel | Jose B. Tan | Leo A. Untalan



This research project developed an interactive learning module (ILM) for pre-service teachers teaching Grade 7 science, conducted a formative evaluation of the developed ILM among IT experts, and tried out the ILM with the target users for feedback and revision. The module was developed following the systematic instructional K-12 curriculum of Grade 7 science. The researchers employed Rapid Application Development (RAD) as research methodology while Adobe Flash and HTML5 were used to create interactive simulations and animations of each lesson in the module. The module went through several formative evaluations after the review by the pool of IT experts and the tryout of the instructional materials with the target users. Pre- and post-tests were also done to find out if the developed interactive module is an effective tool for teaching. The evaluation revealed that the developed interactive learning module is an effective tool for teaching Grade 7 science and students learned best when the module was incorporated in the presentation of the lesson.
