Use of visual aids in teaching science: Practices and attitudes of Hong Kong secondary science teachers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review

Abstract

A questionnaire survey on the use of visual aids for teaching science in Hong Kong had been conducted and statistical analyses were employed to obtain the variatiors across different science subjects, levels of classes taught, teaching experience and gender of the teacher. The findings not only reveal the most popular types of visual aids but also show that the differences across different science subjects and level of classes taught are statistically significant. Furthermore, the use of visual aids was very much limited by their availability and some significant correlation’s were obtained between the frequency of their usage and the degree of acceptance of their advantages.
