EFFECT OF YOUTUBE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO PACKAGE ON SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS’ INTEREST IN PHYSICS IN OWERRI EDUCATION ZONE 1

Abstract

The study investigated the effect of YouTube instructional video package on secondary school students’ interest in physics. Three hypotheses guided the study. A quasi-experimental research design specifically non-equivalent pre-test post-test control group design involving intact classes was used for the study. Multi-stage sampling technique done gave a sample size of 118 physics students drawn from 7,703 SS2 physics students in Owerri education zone 1, Imo state of Nigeria. Two groups ( experimental and control) were taught physics concepts such as projectile motion, linear momentum, velocity and acceleration using YouTube instructional video package (YIVP) and Lecture method (LM) respectively. The instrument used for data collection was Physics Interest Inventory (PII) adopted from Physics Interest Inventory structure by Chukwunenye (2018). The PII is a 20-item inventory and a five point response type such as ‘Like very much, Like, Neither like nor dislike, Dislike and Dislike very much’ with numerical values of 5,4,3,2 and 1 respectively. Any item with mean score above 3.00 was regarded as being liked by the students and if below 3.00 was regarded as being disliked by the students. ANCOVA was used to analyze the research hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The results revealed that there was a significant difference in the mean interest scores of the two groups of students taught physics concepts using YouTube instructional video package and lecture method and no significant difference in the mean interest scores of male and female students taught physics using YIVP
