Development of MBI2 as interactive media in order to enhance scientific communication skills in global warming subject
Journal of Physics, Conference Series
The needs of technology-based learning media on physics subject is amplified in each year, although the learning media often not contextual with the learning subject since certain subject is more suitable with direct experiment. The purpose of this research is to develop media that integrated with the subject (MBI2) in order to enhance scientific communication skills on subject that difficult to observe such global warming subject. This Research develop a media using Sherwoods developing model
... s developing model within the step is: Initiation, Specifications, Design, Production, Review and Evaluation, Delivery and Implementation. Thirty students in some middle school already participated in this research. The result approve that the students is encouraged to more communicative and showing a development with a normalize gain for writing scientific communication skills is 0.38 and for Oral Scientific communication skills is 0,24. With the conclusion is the utilization of MBI2 could be used for further research that related with enhancement of scientific communication skills. Conclusion Based on the research that has been conducted, it was concluded that the use of multimedia computer in global warming subject for junior high school students is capable to enhance scientific communication skills on each type, Oral communication with low category and Written with moderate category in normalized gain score on each sub-concept learnt. The development of scientific communication skills is also found in each indicator with the highest increase in Scientific Reasoning and Asking Question skill indicator, while the lowest increase is on Data gathering, Graphing, and Scientific Words. In practical terms, the use of computer MBI2 can be used as further research to improve students' scientific communication skills. However, it has not been optimized to improve data gathering, graphing and scientific Word as well. It is supported by the results of this research which shows that the normalized gain scores are still low. So, to improve these skills, the aspect must able learned by computer multimedia, and set the appropriate standard for the rubric. MBI2 can only be used as the media that supports learning process. For further research, it would be better if the tests are conducted using an additional meeting in order to access more detail information of students' scientific communication skills in answering questions based on scientifically frame.
