|Title||The Effectiveness of a Multimedia Based Learning Program on Developing Seventh Graders' Listening Comprehension Skills and Attitudes in Gaza Governorate|
The study aimed at investigating the effectiveness of a multimedia based learning program on developing seventh graders' listening comprehension skills and attitudes inGazagovernorate. The target skills were four listening sub skills (understanding the main idea, pointing out specific details, deducing meaning of an unfamiliar lexical item from the listening text and inferring the moral lesson of the listening text). To achieve this aim, the researcher selected a representative sample of 86 EFL female students studying at Al Mamounja Prep girls’ school which is run by UNRWA in theGazastrip. The participants were divided into two equal groups: a control group, 43 student and an experimental one, 43 students. The instruments were, an achievement test, an attitude scale and an interview. The achievement test was used as a pre test to prove groups’ equivalence. Moreover, it was used as a post test to measure any possible differences between the target groups. The collected data were analyzed and treated statistically through the use of SPSS. The attitude scale was used to measure students’ attitudes toward listening skill before and after conducting the multimedia program .In addition, the interview was used for low achievers whose writing ability was weak at the end of each English listening class to be more sure from their understanding to the listening comprehension text. The findings indicated that there were statistically significant differences between both groups, in favor of the experimental one, in understanding the main idea, pointing out specific details, deducing meaning of unfamiliar lexical items from the listening text and inferring the moral lesson of the listening text due to the program implemented. In addition, implementing the effect size equation, the results revealed that the program had a large effect size in favor of the experimental group. In the light of those findings, the researcher recommended the necessity of implementing multimedia program in teaching English listening comprehension. Also, the researcher suggested that further researches should be conducted on the effects of multimedia program on developing different English language Skills and in other fields of educational activities.
