Introduction

“Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self – confidence. – Robert Frost”
Education is a process by which man transmits his experiences, new findings, and values accumulated over the years, in his struggle for survival and development through generations. Education enables individuals and society to make an all-round participation in the developmental process, by acquiring knowledge, ability, skills, and attitudes.
According to the Regional Memorandum No.88, s.1993 – A longer time spent in teaching Filipino from first year and up. It also provides that students should be encouraged to undertake Filipino experiments and teaching should require maximum students activity with emphasis on reflection level lessons. Filipino subject is one of the difficult subjects in the learning process. This subject requires not only day to day lectures but actual manipulation of materials, experimentation, observation, and other scientific process. Some teachers do not have expertise in teaching the subject and they have lack of resources in making the discussion more real and interesting. Sometimes, one setting for a topic is not enough and requires more time for preparation of materials in experimentation and discussion, so it exhaust teacher’s energy that could affect teaching performance.

Computers are important technical tool in today’s generation. It can assist the student learning as well as the teaching process. It could make the teaching instruction more lively and interesting. It is evident that information and communication technologies (ICT) have transformed our lives and reshaped the nature of everyday activities and contemporary times are often called the “information age” or the “knowledge society”. In today’s day and age, education plays a big role in which we are and what we can achieve in our lifetime. Planning and implementing courses – no matter whether done for face – to – face education or within e – learning environments – deal a lot with pedagogical issues. Learning is influenced by a couple of factors such as attention, motivation, emotions, etc. as well as by learner characteristics like prior knowledge, cognitive and learning styles, intellectual capabilities, constitutional states and the forth. (Claudia Blezu, The Impact of E-Learning in Education Source) Prepared lesson plan in Science is not enough to attain high level of performance of the students. Visualization and actual manipulation of materials could provide better understanding. Thus computers are used as one aid for teaching science better. Having a computer aided instruction could maximize the teaching process. This kind of instruction can change the structure of the classroom; the teacher is no longer the focal point of classroom activity rather, serves as facilitator of learning. It is less burden both teachers and students. But, based on some reports the educational level of the pupils is deteriorating. They acquired low performance despite of living in a generation of modern technology.

Hence this study was conducted to determine the effects of computer – aided instruction in Science in academic performance of pupils as well as their learning habits. This is very beneficial on the part of pupils, especially to the respondents, as well as to the teachers, administrators, parents, and other sectors of education because they may know the remedies on how to have better performance in school especially in academic. Is the computer – aided instruction effective in delivering information in Science subject to the students? Does it enhance the study habits of the pupils? Does it create an interesting classroom environment? Does it arouse students’ interest in learning? Does in affects the academic performance of the students? Are there effects in the academic performance and study habits of pupils? Thus, this investigation provides objective data that will lead to better understanding of this phenomenon.

Theoretical/Conceptual Framework

This is related to the study of Richard O'Lander - Use of intelligent computer aided instruction in the classroom (1990). According to him there is no question that computers are important technical tools in today's society. In education, computers can assist the student in learning. Intelligent Computer Aided Instruction ( ICAI) are systems which utilize the techniques of expert systems and artificial intelligence to help a person learn interactively. The basic view of these systems is that they serve as the student's private tutor, responding to the student's individual needs. Such systems have changed the structure of the classroom; the teacher is no longer the focal point of classroom activity. Rather, he serves as a guide for the student as he learns the material. Current trends also tend to support using such systems as an instructional aid in teaching mathematics. This has meant reorganizing the structure of the classroom. Each student and instructor has access to a terminal, and the time periods are restructured to allow for the use of this technology. Most of the systems developed were designed to teach mathematics or technical subjects. Current research indicates that such systems are successful in that the student learns the logic behind a particular concept. It is hoped that these logical thinking skills that are developed can be transferred to other subject areas. It should be noted that most of the studies were conducted with highly motivated students; many systems were designed for this type of student. In concept, this type of individualized instruction is well suited for the unmotivated and slow learner. To use this system for these types of students, ICAI systems will require modifications of the interface of the tutoring system and will require

improved graphics interfaces to hold their interest. These systems will require close monitoring by the teacher.

In the classroom, academic performance of the students is the important aspects to consider in order to achieve high performance rating. In this study, the students will be grouped into two; one group (controlled group) is for experimentation. They will expose in the PowerPoint presentation in filipino while the other group is not. After the experimentation, I will determine the academic performance of the two groups. To provide clear presentation of the direction of the study, the schematic diagram illustrating the theoretical framework of the study is hereby reflected.

Definition of Terms

In order to provide an adequate channel of communication between the researcher and the readers, the following terms, arranged alphabetically, are defined conceptually and operationally:

Academic Performance. Academic performance refers to how students deal with their studies and how they cope with or accomplish different tasks given to them by their teachers. (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_meant_by_academic_performance) As used in this study, the term refers to the quantitative capacity of the pupil towards his subjects.
Learning. A process of acquiring modifications in existing knowledge, skills, habits, or tendencies through experience, practice, or exercise.( Britannica.com)
Habits: a habitual way of behaving: consuetude, custom, habitude, manner, practice, praxis,usage, usance, use, way, wont(thesaurus) As used in this study, the term refers to the practices used by the pupil on his studies.
Powerpoint Presentation.. Use of computers in imparting training, knowledge, monitoring trainee progress, providing feedback, and assessing final results. (http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/computer-based-training-CBT.html)

CARLOS HILADO MEMORIAL STATE COLLEGE

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As used in this study, the term refers to the PowerPoint instructional material in teaching the lesson. Students. Students under the direct supervision of a teacher or professor.(http://www.thefreedictionary.com/pupil) As used in the study, they are the Third Year – students of Manapla National High School School for S.Y. 2010 – 2011.Young students are those ages belong to 15 years old below while old pupils are those ages belong to 16 years old up.

Scope and Limitations of the Study

The study is limited to the effects of PowerPoint presentation in filipino to the academic performance of the students. It involves variables such as age, gender, academic performance, and PowerPoint presentation in Filipino. The instrument used in data gathering was a questionnaire which the researcher admits has the limitation of bias. Hence, the questionnaire was supplemented by observation, journals, articles, books and unpublished these as bases for the formulating of the questionnaire. The study focuses attention to the two groups of respondents from the Third Year population of Manapla National High School. The one group is the control group that will experience the PowerPoint presentation in filipino while the other group is the traditional way of teaching. The number of respondents

is obtained using a statistical instrument and is confined to the period 2010 - 2011. Findings of the study would therefore, be true only for the subjects concerned and for the given period of time, although these could be used as basis for similar studies that would be conducted at the different students of the country.

Assumptions of the Study The following are the assumptions of the study:

1. Young studnts are very interested to their lessons because of the. PowerPoint presentation. 2. Male pupils become more interested to their lessons because of the PowerPoint presentation. 3. The students got high results in their quizzes and examination in Filipino because of PowerPoint presentation. 4. The students had strong interest to study using the PowerPoint presentation in Filipino. 5. There is a great difference on the academic performance in Filipino of the students when one group exposed to PowerPoint presentation and the other group is not. 6. There is a great effectiveness in delivering information about the topic using the computer – aided instruction. 7. Based on the findings of the study, the PowerPoint presentation in filipino is a very useful tool in delivering information about the subject.

Significance of the Study The study was significant to the respondents, teachers, and parents, and administrators of Manapla National High School as well as to other education organization.

With the help of the study, it identifies the factors affecting the academic performance of third year high school students in the District of Manapla. To the students, they will be aware why they have such academic performance. They may able to value the importance of education by knowing the factors affecting to their performance. For the teachers, they may evaluate their teaching performance based on the result or performance of the students. They may answer the question, why a pupil got low or high academic performance? The teachers will be encouraged to have additional trainings about computer. For the parents, they may able to find out the things that they should do to boost the morale of their children towards better academic performance. The study is also significant to the school and other government thrust because it provides information on how to deal students having low academic performance. With this study, the school could also evaluate their performance in line to their mission, vision, and goals. They could identify and provided better instructional materials for effective learning. With the result, the government could plan programs in order to produce competitive, well-rounded students in the community. The government could give more focus on the new trend of teaching which is the use of modern facilities such as computer.

An abstract from the citationDeveloping Culture of Inquiry in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning by LasseLipponen and Kai Hakkarainen (1997)

The purpose of the study is to report results from an early stage of a longitudinal research on CSILE's (Computer-supported Intentional Learning Environments) cognitive effects in a Finnish elementary school. The study was aimed at analyzing how elementary school students' process of inquiry mediated by the CSILE environment developed from first (third grade) to second (fourth grade) year of CSILE use. The study was carried out by analyzing qualitatively 26 students' written productions in CSILE's database as well as by conducting some structured interviews. The study indicated that the students made a considerable progress in terms of explanation-seeking research questions, explanatory level of knowledge produced by them as well as quality of discourse interaction. However, at this point of time there were no indications of in-depth knowledge advancement that characterize the most successful Canadian CSILE classes. It is argued that facilitation of higher-level practices of inquiry in the context of the CSCL require a lot of pedagogical and epistemological support for both the teachers and students. It seems also to be

important to engage a whole school community to the process of pedagogical development rather than deal with individual teachers and classrooms.( http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1599773.1599794&coll=GUIDE&dl=GUIDE&CFID=87581254&CFTOKEN=25286067)

A meta - analysis from the citation Effects of computer-assisted instruction on students’ achievement in Taiwan:
By Yuen-kuang Cliff

A meta-analysis was performed to synthesize existing research comparing the effects of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) versus traditional instruction (TI) on students’ achievement in Taiwan. Fifty-two studies were located from four sources, and their quantitative data was transformed into effect size (ES). The overall grand mean of the study-weighted ES for all 52 studies was 0.55. The results suggest that CAI is more effective than TI in Taiwan. In addition, two of the seventeen variables selected for this study (i.e., statistical power, and comparison group) had a statistically significant impact on the mean ES.
The results from this study suggest that the effects of CAI in instruction are positive over TI. The results also shed light on the debate of learning from media between Clark and Kozma.
This is an excerpt from the paper Computer Aided Instruction by (eg. Bernard, 1986; Clements, 1986; Norton &Resta, 1986) http://www.lotsofessays.com/viewpaper/1683801.html

Existing literature on PowerPoint presentation (e.g. Bernard, 1986; Clements, 1986; Norton &Resta, 1986) indicates that this instructional mode, when supplemented by teacher instruction, may operate to elevate or improve both the math skills and the thinking skills of elementary school children.
The difficulty with most of the foregoing research is that virtually none of it has been based on samples of Hispanic children. Thus while the findings may be valid for Anglo-American or other non-Hispanic groups, it cannot be known as to whether the research findings generalize to Hispanic children. The problem undertaken in this research was to examine whether existing findings on CAI generalize to Hispanic children by examining the effects of Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) on fifth grade, Hispanic children's math skills, critical thinking skills, and their attitudes toward computers.
Specifically, the purpose of this study was to examine differences in attitudes toward computers, math skills, and critical thinking skills for two groups of Hispanic children: (1) a group of fifth grade children who, during the school year, received Computer Aided Instruction; and (2) a group of fifth grade children who, during the school year, did not receive Computer Aided Instruction.

-class backgrounds (most of whom were Anglo) had significantly more opportunities to gain computer training and skills than did students from lower or lower-middle class backgrounds. Computer Attitudes and Student Characteristics Bernard (1986) suggested that CAI efficacy might depend upon certain characteristics and traits of students. Clearly, the foregoing findings suggests that attitudes toward computers are also dependent upon certain characteristics and traits of students, namely upon ethnic

background and/or whether there is a computer at home. A study by Collis (1985) suggests that attitudes toward computers may also be dependent upon students' attitudes towards other factors, for example gender. In her study, Collis found that in general, females view their gender as less competent than males in terms of working with computers. Oddly, Collis also found that while females believe that most females are not as competent as their male peers, they simultaneously believe that they personally are as competent. Jones (1983) conducted a study of 9th grade students in order to see whether there were true gender differences in students' competency with computers.

This is an excerpt from the paper Effectiveness of Computer Aided Learning http://www.lotsofessays.com/viewpaper/1693516.html

This research examines the issue of the effectiveness of the use of computer in the instructional process. Effectiveness within the context of this research refers to learning outcomes.
The Application of Technology to Instruction
Definitions of instructional technology typically vary according to the way in which the factor is conceptualized by those individuals constructing the definitions (Saettler, 1994, p. 2). There are two widely accepted conceptualizations of instructional technology the physical science concept and the behavioural science concept.

CARLOS HILADO MEMORIAL STATE COLLEGE
GRADUATE SCHOOL
Talisay City
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When instructional technology is considered within the context of physical science, it is typically viewed as the application of physical science and engineering technology to the process of education (Saettler, 1994, p. 4). This concept emphasizes device effects and procedures, as opposed to instructional content and learner differences. The development of the physical science concept of instructional technology was not greatly influenced by the interrelationships between educational needs and psychological theory, on the one hand, and the design of instructional messages and media, on the other hand (Finn, 1960, p. 4).
The most significant theoretical premise embodied in the physical science concept of instructional technology is that which casts materials and machines in nonverbal roles and traditional media (lectures, books) in verbal roles (Brown, Lewis, &Harcleroad, 1995, p. 22).
. . . motor or perceptual processes. It is learned through the training of the mind, as opposed to the training of the eyes or hands. CAI software programs facilitate this learning process. Similarly, CAI software may be designed to reflect the cognitive processes employed in the acquiring of skills related to mathematics, science, and engineering. Another illustration from a basic education level is that comprehension in reading comes from within the mind, rather than from the text being read (Anderson-Inman, 1994, p. 280). Thus, prior knowledge and experiences are an essential part of the process of comprehension. CAI software programs may be designed to take advantage of the knowledge and experience levels of specific student users. The ability of CAI software to relate the learning experience to the learner's prior experiences and knowledge is of inestimable value in the teaching of mathematics. Several specific advantages are

provided by CAI software programs in the teaching of mathematics. The most significant of the advantages available through the use of CAI are as follows: 1. CAI software programs permit the placing of emphasis on a comprehensive understanding of a topic, as opposed to specific aspects of a topic.

Summary of Review of Related Literature

Chapter 2 presents conceptual and research literature which are designed to provide valuable insights among readers about the effects of PowerPoint presentation in filipino to the students. It clearly shows that there are great differences on the performance of the students. Modern way of teaching using the technology motivates the students to learn because of its visual presentation and the clarity of the instrument. The only role of the teacher is to assist the students learning process without any difficulty in presentation of the topics. E – Learning is the unifying term to describe the fields of online learning, web – based training and technology – delivered instruction. Nothing is changing as fast as all the terms related to E- learning. In E – learning environments learners interact with learning materials, their instructors and other learners from various locations and often at various times using network technologies. The study indicated that the students made a considerable progress in terms of explanation-seeking research questions, explanatory level of knowledge produced by them as well as quality of discourse interaction. However, at this point of time there were no indications of in-depth knowledge advancement. There are also some results that the study suggest the effects of Computer – Aided instruction are positive over the Traditional Instruction. A study by Collis (1985) suggests that attitudes toward computers may also be dependent upon students' attitudes towards other factors, for example gender. In her study, Collis found that in general,

Method of Research Used
The main concern of this study is to determine the effects of PowerPoint presentation in filipino to the academic performance of students in Manapla National High School. Accordingly, this investigation used the experimental type of research using the two group method. According to John Davis, Ph.D., experimental research designs are founded on the assumption that the world works according to causal laws. These laws are essentially linear, though complicated and interactive. The goal of experimental research is to establish these cause-and-effect laws by isolating causal variables.

Validity of the Data-Gathering Instrument/s

The instrument is said to be valid if it measures what it intends to measure More formally, Cook and Campbell (1979) define it as the "best available approximation to the truth or falsity of a given inference, proposition or conclusion."

The instrument used in this study underwent face and content validation by validators who are expert in their specific fields relevant to the phenomena under study. These validators were composed of one research director, 2 research major teachers, and 2 English major teachers. The instrument was also presented to the professors of the Graduate School of CHMSC. Their comments and suggestions were considered in the finalization of the instrument.

Reliability of the Data-Gathering Instrument/s

The instrument is said to be reliable if the result of the first and second test is quite similar
According to Del Siegle, Ph.D., a test is reliable to the extent that whatever it measures, it measures it consistently. From a research point of view, the scale seems to be reliable because whatever it is measuring, it is measuring it consistently. Whether those consistent results are valid is another question. However, an instrument cannot be valid if it is not reliable.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In establishing the reliability of the instrument, the researcher made use of a test-retest technique to determine the reliability index of the questionnaire. In this process, 30 dry-run respondents were selected from the Third Year students of Manapla National High School. The dry-run respondents were selected because it will test the reliability of the instrument. To determine the reliability index of the two tests, the Pearson Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation was used. The formula for PPM is reflected as follows:

---------------------------------------------------------------- The application of PPM resulted to a coefficient index of 97 which indicates that the instrument is highly reliable.

Procedure When the validity and reliability of the three instruments were established, sufficient copies of the questionnaire were reproduced for administration to the respondents. Prior to the test administration, official request to administer the instrument was sought from the principal of the school. With the permission, the researcher personally administered the instrument to the respondents. The researcher explains to the respondents the confidentiality of their answers and presented to them the purpose of having the survey.

Effect of Study Habits Towards the Academic Performance

...Effects of Study Habits in Academic Performances CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction The extent of student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades that a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary factor that indicates of such learning. If a student earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would affect the grades. Not a single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been interplay of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, the researcher would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic achievement of under secondary student of Jaime G. Espena High School. The investigation of on this area thus becomes a real and compelling motivation for the researcher to conduct this study.

In today’s world, science encompasses many ways of gaining information which helps individuals know themselves and their environment better and develop and renew this information frequently. Teaching science and technology to individuals help them to learn how adopt and adapt an inclination which forces them to think objectively and make the right decision confronting different events and situations. This inclination provides a comfortable life for them as well as for their family and their environment (Akgun, 2001). If students learn science using a scientific procedure and skill they would be able to use these procedures and skills in their daily life. In this procedure, while students’ attitudes towards science increase, they develop their creativity skills. During the primary educational period, courses on science and technology achieve a great importance comparing to the other courses since these courses teach students the environment, natural events and scientific developments as well as critical thinking and problem solving. (Kaptan, 1999) An attitude is an inclination to gaining a skill and is identified as an individual......

Powerpoint Presentation

...CHAPTER I Introduction Background of the Study This study investigates whether PowerPoint presentations improve student’s learning and attitudes compared with traditional classroom presentations. While the use of PowerPoint and multimedia in the classroom has significantly increased globally in recent years (Connor and Wong, 2004; Bartsch and Cobern, 2003), few studies have systematically investigated its impact on student learning and attitudes. Rebele et al. (1998) note that little research exists regarding integration of technology in the accounting curriculum, and suggest that accounting researchers should examine whether technology improves learning. One study that has examined the relationship between multimedia and student learning and attitudes was conducted by Butler and Mautz (1996). In a laboratory experiment conducted during a 30-minute time period, they found that multimedia did not affect student recall in all situations. Butler and Mautz did find an interaction between the effects of the multimedia presentation and the student’s preferred class representation style (i.e., whether the student was considered a “verbal” or “imaginal” learner). To improve the quality of learning in our schools using multimedia is very effective in the teaching learning situation. It benefits the students to grasp information easily, to understand as much information as possible, to retain information longer and to gain knowledge that is observable and measured. Literally,......

Many studies have examined the factors that influence academic performance in primary and secondary education as well as at university, with the purpose of enhancing learning at these stages and reducing drop-out rates. It is within this research framework that we want to emphasise the deficient performance of students enrolled on the statistics course in the Faculty of Psychology at the University of Barcelona. Consequently, this paper attempts to determine the factors that affect student performance in this subject by undertaking an analysis of a structural equation model and determining its stability over time. In order to accomplish our objective, we worked with two samples of students enrolled statistics classes. The first group comprised 211 students enrolled in the academic year 2000– 2001, while the second comprised 287 students enrolled in the academic year 2001–2002. By administering a questionnaire, we obtained information concerning such variables as demographic data, previous academic record, information related to the......

Cognizant of the Centro Escolar University vision of “Sustaining Quality and Excellence in the Next 100 years”, the school of Accountancy and Management continuously appraises its academic performance.

Hence, people tend to believe they’re doing better than most of the people around them.
