Abstract:
Information Communication Technology is widely used in Schools, Universities and other organizations all over the world, either to support classroom learning or on its own. The Palestine schools and Universities are no exception. Usually, a special kind of web-based content management system is used for running Information Communication Technology contents. These systems hold all the content and information of the students and also provide the interactive tools to support learning process. While using such systems makes the Information Communication Technology experience much easier, it also induces some problems like the heterogeneous previous knowledge of the students. With newly developing multimedia technologies, incorporating simultaneous presentations of narration, still pictures, animation pictures, images, and text, the possibilities for instruction are vast. Yet, how and when should educators use these technologies in the most effective ways to enhance learning? This is the main question behind this research: What is Effectiveness of Information Communication Technology Approach on Mathematics Achievement? In this study, an experimental group of (48) students was examined after studying a mathematics using Information Communication Technology approach. The instructional design approach was used. The researcher has used the Khamis Instructional Design Model (2003) since it was proved to be simple and efficient. The students’ achievement was examined before and after the experiment. The research results proved that there is a significant increase in Gain in Achievement. The Information Communication Technology learning has achieved efficiency greater than (80%) in achievement. Also, the Information Communication Technology learning has achieved efficiency greater than (1.2) measured with respect to Black’s Gain Ratio in achievement. Also, the Information Communication Technology learning has achieved efficiency greater than (0.6) measured with respect to McGugian’s Gain Ratio in achievement. The Information Communication Technology learning has achieved larger effect size (more than 0.14) on achievement.
