Noppadon Sangthong, Noawanit Songkram

Abstract


The present study aimed 1) to compare the effectiveness of collaboration between pre- and post-experiment among learners who applied a mobile application for education with jigsaw technique, 2) to compare the effectiveness of post-experiment collaboration between a group of learners who learned through a mobile application for education with jigsaw technique and a group of learners who learned through jigsaw technique, and 3) to investigate learners’ satisfaction after using a mobile application for education with jigsaw technique. The participants of the study were 40 of grade 8 students studying at Saint Gabriel’s College. Research instruments for this study were lesson plans, a mobile application for education with jigsaw technique, a learners’ collaborative skills test, a behavioural observation form and a survey of learners’ satisfaction. The researcher analysed the data using mean, Standard Deviation, and t-test. The findings revealed that 1) a group of learners learning through a mobile application for education with jigsaw technique gained significantly higher postexperiment collaborative skills’ mean scores than their pre-experiment scores at the .05 level of significance, 2) a group of learners learning through a mobile application for education with jigsaw technique gained significantly higher post-experiment collaborative skills’ mean scores than those of a group using jigsaw technique at the .05 level of significance, and 3) a group of learners learning through a mobile application for education with jigsaw technique reflected their overall satisfaction at a high level.
