STUDY OF STUDENT LEARNING ACHIEVEMENT IN COMPUTER IN COURSE ON CREATING E -BOOK AND STUDENT SATISFACTION WITH THE "BIG 6 SKILLS MODEL" INSTRUCTION
Summary. The objective of this research was aimed to compare student learning achievement between using the instructional innovation on creating e-Book and classroom traditional learning pre-learning and post-learning, and to examine the student satisfaction with Computer learning based on the "Big 6 Skills Model", and to investigate "e-Book" creating skills by using the Flip Album Vista Pro 7.0 program in Prathom 6 (Grade 6) elementary students of the Nibong Chanupatham School. In this study, the sample included a total of ninety students who were studying at Prathom 6 in the academic year 2016. The research instrument included the instructional plan, instructional innovation, tests, questionnaires, and e-book evaluation toward Computer instruction based on the "Big 6 Skills Model" of Prathom 6 students and the Rubric Score assessment. The results revealed that the outcomes of the students by using the instructional innovation on creating-Book post-learning were higher than classroom traditional learning, and student learning achievement by using the "Big 6 Skills Model" posttest scores was higher than the pretest scores. The students were taught using the innovative instruction on creating e-book reported the higher level of satisfaction with the instruction in Computer than those students with the traditional learning. In addition, it found that creating e-book skills were better improved with students taught using the innovative instruction than those students with the traditional learning.
Key words: Learning Achievement, Big 6 Skills Model, Satisfaction, Instructional Curriculum, Instructional Innovation.
Posing problems. In the challenges of information and technology age, the individuals are necessary to access to the information and self-development to obtain information properly; learning all the times is therefore important for the individuals to keep pace with diverse information. It is a society of continuous learning where people are needed from time to time to enhance their skills and learning opportunities and develop the information literacy skills and management for sustainable application of the knowledge . Computer has played an important role in learning and teaching together with the media known as "instructional innovation" that helps convey and transfer knowledge from instructors or learning resources to the learners as well as it help explain the content of the lessons to the students in the easy-to-understand way that the students may achieve their learning objectives. In addition, the instructional innovation also encourages the students to learn in more fun and happier way, and in the long term, it also results in the improved learning achievement. Consistent with Chuagngam , stating “Computer has many features applied suitably and efficiently to teaching and learning owing to its high performance such as content presentation, knowledge test, and exercises for learner’s comprehension, as well as it is an essential technology for the lives.
Therefore, the researchers have been of the interest to the application of the "Big 6 Skills Model" to develop the instructional plan integrated with learning by using the researcher-developed instructional innovation with the intent that the students will acquire computer literacy skills and use of technology effectively . In this study, electronic book (e-Book) was developed using Flip Album Vista Pro 7.0 as an instructional material, integrated with teaching methods where the individual differences are focused and to encourage the learners to acquire data management skills to generate knowledge composite, innovative presentation, and the sharing of useful data to others locally and nationally. Furthermore, the instructional arrangement principles call for instructional knowledge and insight of the instructors in order to urge the learners to approach the continuous learning process in which knowledge composite can be developed as well as unceasingly self-learning skills development physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually . It does not matter whatever styles of learning and teaching is given, however; when it yields the learning, it is recognized an effective instruction .
The purpose of this research was aimed to examine the student learning achievement; the computer skills acquired with the use of the “Big 6 Skills Model” in Prathom 6 students, and the emphasis of computer skills acquisition through creating "e-Book" with the aid of Flip Album Vista Pro 7.0, and student’s outcomes in computer. Next, it was purported to examine the student satisfaction with computer learning based on the "Big 6 Skills Model”, because the satisfaction is a key element of success in learning and teaching. As Kanya Thong-oun [3, p. 71] mentioned “the satisfaction is the individual’s feeling or positive attitude toward work is done or activity performance. Thus, the satisfaction towards learning is meant to the feeling of satisfaction in participating in the project-based learning and teaching activities and the wish for such activities to achieve success
Main content presentation. The study of student learning achievement in the computer on creating e-Book and the student satisfaction with computer learning based on the "Big 6 Skills Model" in Prathom 6 students of Nibong Chanupatham School showed as follows.
The results showed that the students taught using the innovative instruction on creating e-book reported the higher level of satisfaction with the computer instruction than those students with the traditional learning; they were more eager to learn than those students taught with traditional learning, and students showed improved understanding of the content and improved performance a great deal.
Conclusion and future works. The students taught using the innovative instruction on creating e-book were more satisfied with the computer instruction than those students with the traditional learning; namely, they were more eager to learn than those students taught with traditional learning, they improved understanding of the content and were able to meet the excellent performance outcomes. Also, the "Big 6 Skills Model" is an integrated information skill and technology that students can use information technology as a tool to seek information and analysis effectively. Most of them were happier and more likely to learn information, especially to the extent which they may access to the source of knowledge as they desire and self-determination on learning, the opportunity to seek knowledge from various realistic sources internally and externally and across the internet network.
Besides, the guidelines for future research include;
