Item Summary

Title: Enhancing Learning for 5th Graders by Way of Website Delivery for the Content Area of Social Studies
Issue Date: 4-May-2011
Abstract: Today’s 21st century learners conduct most of their lives through
assisted technology outside of school. The fast paced world of technology is changing by
the minute yet; students are being left behind in educational settings because of outdated
methods through which they are still being taught. Schools are struggling to keep up with
today’s trends and improvements to meet students’ needs. This action research project
attempted to determine if a web-based delivery approach could enhance learning by
improving technical skills, participation, and motivation in 5th grade students in the
content area of social studies. Pre and Post unit learning reflection results indicated
positive reactions from participants. Teacher observations and student growth in the
subject matter covered, suggested that web-based delivery in the form of a website may
be effective as a tool for delivering content. Exposing students to web-based delivery also
changed their individual preferences of how they like to learn.
