Authors

Abstract

Abstract: The use of virtual reality technologies for rich multi-media presentations of the field sites thus becomes a practical alternative. Because of the Internet medium of virtual field trips, teachers can now expand and enhance their student’s learning beyond the walls of the traditional classroom using this form of technology. The aims of the paper are to assess the effectiveness of Virtual Field Trips regarding Academic Achievement in respect to teaching forest resources and to find out the level of motivation among students in relation to virtual field trips. Quasi-Experimental Method was followed and Two-group, Pretest-Post test Design was selected. There are two types of method of teaching such as Conventional Method of Teaching and Virtual Field Trip method of Teaching. The treatment is Virtual Field Trip method of Teaching. The sample consisted of 100 Geography students of class XI from the four schools belonged to rural and urban categories. An achievement test and a five point rating scale were used as tools. A non-interactive one hour Virtual Field Trip (VFT) module based on Equatorial Rain Forests was used. The Virtual Field Trip mode of teaching is more effective than the conventional method of teaching for academic achievement of students because the mean score of achievement test of the VFT exceeds the mean score achievement test of the conventional method. Rural students performed better than the urban students in both method of teaching. But in VFT, the rural students scored higher than the rural students under the conventional method. No interaction is found. Hence, the VFT method of teaching is overall effective method of teaching for better academic achievement irrespective of locale. VFT method of teaching is more effective than conventional method of teaching to arouse motivation in learning among students. There is an interaction effect of methods of teaching and the levels of locale. But the VFT method of teaching is more effective to arouse motivation irrespective of levels of locale.
