EFFECT OF TRAINING IN THE USE OF MOBILE PHONE SMS ON NOTE TAKING AND COMPREHENSION OF AUDIO TAPED MATERIALS IN KOGI STATE, NIGERIA

ABSTRACT 

This study investigated the effect of using mobile phone short message service (SMS) on note taking and comprehension of materials presented through an audio system. The theoretical basis for this study was Operant conditioning that discourages passivity and encourages active or activity based learning, constancy or practice and the use of reinforcement to improve the learning behaviours of learners. The study also examined the effect of gender on achievement in note taking and comprehension of materials in the note. Four research questions and six hypotheses guided the study. The study employed a quasi-experimental non-equivalent pretest, posttest control group design. A sample of 400 subjects was drawn through stratified random sampling procedure. Two instruments-Audio Taped Lecture (ATL) and Test for assessing comprehension (TAC) were designed and used to collect the data for the study. These two instruments were face validated by three research experts in Science Education and Educational Psychology of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. The reliability index for ATL was obtained as 0.88 while 0. 81 was obtained for TAC. The four research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation while the six hypotheses were tested using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study included that, training in the use of mobile phone’ SMS writing style had significant positive effects on students’ note taking, and comprehension of the material in the notes. A test of significance showed that gender was not a significant differing factor in note taking and comprehension of the notes. Similarly, a non-significant interaction effect of training and gender on students’ mean scores in note taking as well as comprehension was also found. The educational implications of these findings were also discussed and various recommendations such as the teaching and learning of strategic note taking using SMS style of writing, making deliberate and conscious efforts to encourage note taking among students by their teachers among others were suggested. Limitations of this work were highlighted while areas for further research were suggested.
