Use of Movie Scenes as Simulations to Enhance Students’ Performance on Selected Physics Concepts
This study examined the effectiveness of using movie scenes as simulations in enhancing student's performance on selected physics concepts. The study compared two groups of second year Bachelor of Elementary Education students in Samar State University in which the experimental group was taught physics concepts using the movie scenes as simulations, and the control group was taught using the traditional lecture method. Pre-tests and post-tests were used to collect the data. The quantitative data collected was calculated using a dependent t-test and independent t-test. Although the findings suggested that both methods were effective in teaching physics concepts, students in the experimental group had shown a larger gain in their post-tests than their counterparts in the control group.
