SCIENCE EDUCATION ADAPTIVE LEARNING SYSTEM AS A COMPUTER-BASED SCIENCE LEARNING WITH LEARNING STYLE VARIATIONS
Journal of Baltic Science Education
Students with their different learning styles also have their own different learning approaches, and teachers cannot simultaneously facilitate them all. Teachers' limitation in serving all students' learning styles can be anticipated by the use of computer-based instructions. This research aims to develop ScEd-Adaptive Learning System (ScEd-ASL) as a computer-based science learning media by accommodating students' learning style variations. The research method used is a mixed method at junior
... method at junior high schools in Tangerang Selatan. The final product of the research is a special learning media appropriate to students' visual, aural, read/write and kinesthetic learning styles. The uniqueness of the media is its form of integrated science materials, accommodating fast and slow learners, and appropriate to their learning styles. ScEd-Adaptive Learning System as a developed computer-based science learning media was declared as good and valid by four media experts and five learning material experts. ScEd-ALS for kinesthetic style has a high effectivity to improve students learning mastery (100%), consecutively aural (63%), read/write (55%), and visual (20%). This media development can be continued with the Android version or iOS to make it more operationally practical.
