Fen, teknoloji, mühendislik ve matematik içerikli okul sonrası etkinlikler ve öğrenciler üzerindeki etkileri

Öz:
Bu çalışmanın amacı, Fen, Teknoloji, Mühendislik ve Matematik (FeTeMM) içerikli okul sonrası etkinliklerin özelliklerini incelemek, öğrencilerin bu etkinlikler ile olan deneyimlerini ve kazanımlarını ve etkinliklerin öğrenciler üzerindeki etkilerini ortaya çıkarmaktır. Bu amaç kapsamında, betimleyici, nitel bir durum çalışması araştırma deseni olarak kullanılmıştır. Okul sonrası program etkinliklerine Amerika Birleşik Devletlerinin Güney Doğusunda bulunan sözleşmeli bir okuldan öğrenciler katılmıştır. Çalışma verileri üç farklı kaynaktan elde edilmiştir: (1) etkinliklere rehberlik sırasında araştırmacı tarafından yapılan gözlemler, (2) rehberlik ve öğrencilerle gerçekleştirilen toplantılar sonrasında alınan saha notları ve (3) katılımcı öğrencilerle yapılan bire bir ve yarı yapılandırılmış görüşmeler. Verilerin analizi sonucunda okul sonrası etkinlikleri tanımlanmış ve dört ana tema ortaya çıkmıştır: (a) işbirliğine dayalı öğrenme gruplarının önemi; (b) okul sonrası program etkinliklerinin popülerliği, (c) FeTeMM ile ilgili alanlara gösterilen ilgi ve (d) okul sonrası etkinliklerin 21. yüzyıl becerilerine katkısı. Çalışmanın bulguları, FeTeMM ile ilgili okul sonrası etkinliklerin, bağımsız ve işbirliğine dayalı bilimsel araştırmalara yönelik ve 21. yüzyıl becerilerinin geliştirilmesine katkı yapabilecek potansiyelde olduğunu göstermiştir. Ayrıca, FeTeMM odaklı okul sonrası etkinliklerin öğrencilere öğrenmelerinde nasıl destek olduğu değerlendirilmiştir

STEM related after-school program activities and associated outcomes on student learning

Öz:
This study explores the characteristics of after-school program activities at a charter school in the Southeast US highlighting students experiences with and gains from these after-school program activities. A qualitative case study design was employed to understand students views and opinions regarding the activities and their learning trajectories. Study data were collected through formal and informal observations, one-on-one semi-structured interviews, and field notes. The study s findings indicated that such activities emphasize open-ended and collaborative scientific investigations in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields and provided an arena for students to demonstrate various uses of 21st century skills. We have described and explained: (a) the importance of collaborative learning groups, (b) the popularity of after-school program activities, (c) interest in STEM fields, and (d) activities contribution to developing 21st century skills. These findings show that STEM related activities have the potential to promote collaborative learning and inquiry as well as to contribute to the development of 21st century skills. These findings have also been discussed in light of how STEM related after-school program activities support students learning.
