İlköğretim Öğrencilerinin Bilgisayar Deneyimleri ile Uzamsal Düşünme ve Geometri Başarıları Arasındaki İlişki

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship among elementary school students’ computer experience, computer ownership and their achievement in geometry. Assesed were 297 fourth and fifth grade students from four different school sites. Results showed that students who have computer at home and have an earlier computer experience scored higher in geometry test than those who do not have computers and who do not have any earlier computer experience respectively. Results also showed that the difference is getting wider. It was concluded that measures should be taken to increase computer access in schools located in poorer socio-economic areas to decrease the social disequity.
