The Effects of Smart Board Applications on Students’ Attitudes in Pattern-Making Teaching


The aim of this study is to determine the effects of Synchronous E-learning Applications and Face-to-face Teaching based on Smart Board on students attitudes in Pattern-Making Teaching which is one of the fundamental courses in fashion design and clothing education. Hence, this paper seeks to answer the question “Do Synchronous E-learning Applications and Face-to-face Teaching based on Smart Board affect students attitudes in Pattern-Making Teaching?” In this study, a pretest - posttest control group design was used on 51 students. An attitude scale developed by the researchers was applied. In Pattern-Making teaching, the first Experiment group was taught through Face-to-face Teaching based on Smart Board, while the second Experiment group was taught through Synchronous E-learning based on Smart Board. The Control group was taught through Traditional Teaching methods. The Kruskal Wallis-H Test was applied to identify the difference between the groups. The Mann Whitney-U Test was performed for binary comparisons to test for significant differences according to test results. A significant correlation was found at 0.001 level in the results. Smart Board applications were observed to generate more positive attitudes in the experiment groups. It was found that the attitudes of the students in the Experiment-1 group where the smart board based Face-to- face Teaching was conducted were more positive than those in the Experiment-2 group in which E-learning applications were conducted. As expected, no significant difference in attitudes of students were found in the Control group since the same teaching approach was used.
