چکیده

پژوهش حاضر، با هدف سنجش اثربخشی بهره‌گیری از وبلاگ به‌عنوان یک فعالیت کمک آموزشی برای آموزش محیط زیست به دانش‌آموزان دبیرستانی انجام شد. روش تحقیق در این پژوهش شبه تجربی از نوع پیش‌آزمون و پس‌آزمون با گروه کنترل بوده است. جامعه آماری کلیه دانش‌آموزان دبیرستانی شهر رامهرمز می‌باشد. حجم نمونه آماری، به کمک جدول تعیین حجم نمونه کرجسی و مورگان، 88 نفر تعیین شد. با استفاده از روش نمونه‌گیری تصادفی طبقه‌ای، دانش‌آموزان در 4 گروه دختران و پسران (2 گروه مداخله و 2 گروه شاهد، هر کدام 22 نفر) قرار گرفتند. ابزار جمع‌آوری اطلاعات پرسش‌نامه محقق ساخته می‌باشد. داده‌ها به کمک آمار توصیفی و استنباطی تجزیه و تحلیل گردید. نتایج به‌دست آمده از مقایسه دو گروه آزمایش و کنترل، حاکی از وجود تفاوت معنی‌دار برای دانش شناختی، نگرش و رفتار محیط زیستی می‌باشد و در نتیجه در سواد محیط زیستی گروه کنترل و آزمایش تفاوت معنی‌داری وجود دارد. هم‌چنین، نتایج آموزش در گروه پسران در مقایسه با گروه دختران دارای تفاوت معنی‌داری بوده است و اثربخشی به نفع گروه پسران بود. نتایج نشان از اثربخشی وبلاگ نویسی به عنوان یک فعالیت کمک آموزشی برای آموزش محیط زیست به گروه مورد آزمایش می‌باشد.
