This study aims to investigate the effects of integrating the FOLC model with digital formative assessment tools and student response systems in teaching geometric optics. Based on a review of the literature on transactional distance theory, a lesson sequence on geometric optics was developed integrating the chosen digital tools Nearpod and Socrative. Using a mixed methods sequential explanatory design, grade 12 STEM students’ levels of student engagement, online learning satisfaction, and perceived learning were measured before and after the intervention. Further, 10 students were asked to participate in post-test interviews to determine their experiences and what they consider the affordances and challenges of utilizing those in learning geometric optics.
Analysis of the quantitative results indicated a statistically positive significant difference in student engagement mean scores, online satisfaction mean scores, and perceived learning mean scores. Moreover, the post-intervention interviews were analyzed using Braun & Clarke’s (2006) Theoretical Analysis Framework, which revealed some affordances generated by the implementation such as the facilitation of the different features of Nearpod & Socrative in covering the lessons in geometric optics, the opportunity to share, collaborate ideas, as well as challenges, such as bandwidth requirements of using multiple apps, difficulty in multi-tasking, to name a few. According to the findings, using DFATs and SRSs in a fully online learning environment can potentially engage students for a better online learning experience, and the affordances outweigh the challenges.
