The reduction-oxidation processes in chemistry education

Gabriela Osiecka

Abstract

The main issue of doctoral thesis is to answer the question: How redox chemistry should be taught in order to be both attractive and effective for students? Experimentally, the influence of educational computer programmes on didactic effectiveness in redox reactions has been verified in high schools. The research also included students’ opinions about their motivation and the multimedia programmes as didactic tools.The research was conducted from 2006 to 2009 and 555 pupils from five schools participated in it. The experimental groups were taught using the multimedia programme “The reduction-oxidation processes in chemistry education”. The control groups worked using traditional methods. The results showed that the pupils from the experimental groups obtained better results than pupils from the control groups. Moreover, the distance research proved that obtained knowledge is more recollective. The educational computer programme not only helps in acquiring knowledge, but also allows pupils to undertake self-control and self-assessment. Students are given the opportunity to track the sources of their mistakes and consequently increase the efficiency of the education process. Furthermore, the programme enables young people to develop considerable skills that are of great value in the modern world.The research has shown that multimedia computer programme can be of significant benefit in helping students master redox chemistry. The pupils stated that learning with the computer programmes is an attractive, multifunctional and effective form of education.
