Abstract

The aim of the current research is to determine the effect of an educational _
learning design based on the educational platform Edmodo in the achievement of teaching
thinking subject among students of colleges of Education. The researchers used the
descriptive approach to design the educational design model in addition to the experimental
approach to apply the educational and learning design. The researchers also used the
experimental design for two groups (experimental and control) with partial control. The
research sample included (69) Year-four (seniors) students of the College of Education Ibn
Rushd for Humanities, Department of Educational and Psychological Sciences. The number
of students of the experimental group reached (37) who studied according to the educational
design – learning based on the educational platform Edmodo.
The number of students of the control group reached (32) students who studied in the
traditional way. The researchers assigned the two research groups with the following variables
(chronological age calculated in months, intelligence, previous knowledge and previous
achievement of the subject of cognitive psychology). In order to reach the results of the current
research, the researchers built the achievement test, which consists of (50) items, including
(40) items of the type of multiple choice questions- quadruples, and (10) items of the type of
essay specified answer. The researchers applied the research tool and the data was collected
and processed statistically using the T-test for two independent samples and the equation of
the effect size to determine the effectiveness of the educational design. The results of the
research revealed the following: The superiority of the students of the experimental group in
the achievement test who studied using an Edmodo-based educational design Edmodo over the students of the control group who studied according to the traditional method. The size of
the effect of the Educational design model of the achievement test shows a significant effect
according to the classification developed by Cohen.
