Title: The Use of Digital Games to Develop Inquiry Skills and Enhance Science Students’ Experiences in Girls in a Selected School in Trinidad and Tobago
Author: Rambally, Allison
Abstract: This mixed-methods study investigated the effects of using digital games on female students at a selected secondary school in Trinidad and Tobago. Data were collected through the administration of a quasi-experimental pre- and post-test to 39 students, as well as through examination of the students’ journals. The findings revealed that there was a significant increase in inquiry skills among the students at the end of a three-week period. They performed significantly better in the post-test, having acquired more effective inquiry skills. Analysis of the students’ journals revealed that their experiences peaked when digital games were integrated into their lessons.
