Jordanian physics students' utilization of online instruction and their attitudes towards it

Akram M. A. Al-Omari, Yarmouk University, Jordan


Abstract
Given the limited number of currently available resources in Jordan, the ministry of Education is implementing newly developed online physics curriculum and trying it in few experimental public schools. This investment is still regarded with some skepticism among both students and teachers. Consequently, this research seeks to redress this by examining the instructions of online physics curriculum in one of the experimental public schools. Eleventh grade students in their classroom were observed and surveyed. Participants were also interviewed to establish the current uses concerning online curricula in schools in Jordan. The research outlines student responses to questions about their own learning and their assessment of the value of online curricula in helping them to manage their studies. Our results are not surprising, but lead to further insights about how Jordanian teachers can link their efforts to student perceptions of the many initiatives they undertake, especially in using online Technology for teaching and learning.
