SPINS: a set of active learning strategy in Physics amidst pandemic

Jethromel Meneses, University of the Philippines (Philippines)


The present study aimed to determine the impact of the researcher-organized active learning strategy, SPINS, on students' engagement and academic performance in an online Physics class. By utilizing a pre-experimental design, the study employed both a Physics achievement test and a student engagement survey as research tools to collect data. The findings of the study revealed that students' engagement varied depending on the specific component of the SPINS strategy implemented. However, it was found that there was a significant improvement in Physics achievement across all student groups. Additionally, the interactive presentation part of the strategy fostered a high level of enjoyment and engagement among the students. The results of this study provide evidence for the potential of the SPINS active learning strategy to enhance students' engagement and academic performance in online Physics education and have important implications for the design and implementation of active learning strategies in online learning environments.
