  • Digital Divide in the Learning Process of Physics during Covid – 19 pandemic. Ecuador

    • Autor(es): Karen Duchi and Juan Barrera
    • Abstract: In March 2020, a quarantine measure was declared in Ecuador to counteract the spread of Covid-19. Therefore, the educational systems had to activate contingency plans to continue with the teaching-learning process by using resources that foster an adequate education during the confinement at home. The purpose of this article is to determine how the access to technological resources can affect the learning of Physics. The participants were students of the last two levels of secondary education of “Hermano Miguel de la Salle” and “San Francisco” High Schools. The obtained results have allowed to establish that there is a technological gap in terms of access to digital educational resources between students in a public and a private school. Learning by discovery must be used to study science; however, due to the current confinement situations, this learning technique has not been possible. Hence, there was a need to investigate how students are acquiring their knowledge of Physics.

  • Teacher performance evaluation model in COVID19 times. Perú

    • Autor(es): Olger Gutierrez Aguilar, Aleixandre Brian Duche Perez and Ananí Gutierrez Aguilar
    • Abstract: This study purpose was to validate a model for evaluating teacher performance at university level, in the modality of non-attendance education, based on the management of teaching and learning processes with the LMS - Moodle and its integration with the MS Teams, according to the adaptation provided by the National Superintendence of Higher University Education (SUNEDU) in Peru, due to the social distancing declared by the government in Covid19 times. The evaluation model involves first validating the 15-item questionnaire, with 5 factors each one, with 3 items using the 5-value Likert scale, applying the Item Response Theory (IRT) model for graduated response polytomics items. The latent structure of the items was analyzed, applying firstly the exploratory factorial analysis using SPSS, secondly, for the confirmatory analysis the PLS-SEM methodology was used, which is a second generation multivariate method called Structural Equation Modeling with Partial Least Squares. The model was validated with a sample of 358 undergraduate students in 5 subjects of the Professional School of Psychology. It is concluded that, the statistical tests for exploratory and confirmatory analyses, have revealed acceptable results in their assessment, therefore, it is stated that the instrument is reliable and consistent, therefore, its relationship with the variable (NPS), validates the model in its integrity.

  • Is Online Distance Learning compatible with Student lifestyle? Assessment of program content, workload and long-time usefulness. Finlandia

    • Autor(es): Sunday Adewale Olaleye, Ismaila Temitayo Sanusi, Friday Joseph Agbo and Solomon Sunday Oyelere
    • Abstract: Online distance learning (ODL) is gaining rapid acceptance in the educational system, and the level of student enrollment is massive nowadays. Although the adoption of online distance learning seems to be impacting students learning experience, the aspect of compatibility with the student lifestyle remains unclear and needs to be researched. This study employed quantitative methodology to describe the relationship between the chosen independent and dependent variables adapted from the existing literature objectively and used structural equation modelling with version 3.2.8 of SmartPLS for the data analysis. This study contributes to the literature of online distance learning and information systems by giving a comprehensive understanding of how program content positively relates with online academic workload and how longtime usefulness of online distance learning relates to compatibility of online distance learning for the lifestyle of the ODL students. This shows the importance of program content as a determinant of workload and how the memory of the long time usefulness can aid the compatibility of the ODL. The study explicates the theoretical contributions, implications and offers a suggestion for future research.

  • Teaching experiences during COVID-19 pandemic: Narratives from ResearchGate. Finlandia

    • Autor(es): Ismaila Temitayo Sanusi, Sunday Adewale Olaleye and Oluwaseun Alexander Dada
    • Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has remarkably affected every sphere of our lives and education inclusive. It greatly disrupted the teaching and learning process which necessitated alternative approaches at different climes to ameliorate the situation. In the new normal, various pedagogical tactics and teaching strategies are employed for content delivery. More so, different platforms are utilized to enable learning as well as assessment techniques. This study therefore sought to explore the teaching experiences during the pandemic. It also highlights the success factors of online teaching during the COVID-19 semester and the best assessment strategies used during the pandemic. The methodology adopted in the study is narrative and specifically, the Naturalist narrative. The retrieved responses reveal both positive and negative experiences but more of the challenges encountered dominated the reviews. Many factors accounts for the negative experiences such as internet issues including its cost, student’s participation rate, insufficient media instructions, lack of students preparation and preference for face to face class. The responses further shows that various platforms are used to enable teaching continue remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic and the preference of tool used by individuals differs based on interest, audience, location, content of the course, accessibility among others. We gave conclusion, and offer a useful suggestion for the future study.

  • Preparation for Future Learning: The Case of Rural Communities in Nigeria. Finlandia

    • Autor(es): Ismaila Temitayo Sanusi, Sunday Adewale Olaleye and Adekunle Okunoye
    • Abstract: Preparation for future learning is crucial to economic development and poverty eradication because ignorance is the modern slavery of backwardness. Nigeria population is increasing daily. With this growing population, there is a need for self-study, home study, Internet, or online study to meet the pressing worldwide demands for literacy training employing distance instruction. Internet use is linear in Nigeria with forecasts of Internet user reaching 187.8 million in 2023. This study examines the preparation of rural communities in Nigeria for future learning; examine infrastructures and resources available that can facilitate future learning; and also explores the means and approaches to changes future learning systems through the lens of education learning theories. The theory of connectivism was employed. Based on quantitative approach, questionnaire was used to collect data from rural residents of 2,377 samples and utilized SPSS v. 25 for descriptive statistics and regression analysis. Internet availability and affordability are central to future learning, especially in the angle of emerging technology intervention in future learning systems. This result shows that the location of the Internet user’s residence and the frequency of Internet use depend on the cost of the Internet. The excluded rural areas can leverage the Internet for flexible online programs and courses to reduce the alarming illiteracy rates.
