Effect of Blended Learning Strategy on Secondary School Students' Achievement in Chemistry
Jiya Anne John | Dr. Anil Kumar K 
Abstract: A new perspective is required in approaching the chemistry teaching and learning instead of rote memorization that has been followed for ages. Employing blended learning strategy can enhance the teaching and learning of Chemistry. Blended learning strategy is an instructional methodology involving the integration of synchronous and asynchronous learning tools for teaching learning process. The present study was aimed at finding the influence of blended learning strategy on secondary level students' achievement in chemistry by comparing it with existing method. The blended learning model employed was a blend of technology enabled synchronous meetings and asynchronous activities. The study employed experimental method with pretest-posttest nonequivalent-groups design. The sample was selected from one of the semi urban CBSE schools in Kerala. A blended learning package comprising of both face-to face teaching and online media was developed for teaching the chapters 'Atoms and Molecules' and 'Structure of the Atom' from NCERT standard IX science textbook. The statistical techniques used for analysis of data are t-test and ANCOVA. It was found that the Blended learning strategy was effective in influencing the achievement in chemistry among secondary school students. The finding of the study has several educational implications for the policy makers, curriculum planners and teachers. If policy makers can integrate blended learning in the subject of chemistry teaching learning it can improve the achievement in chemistry among secondary school students.
