Abstract

The objective of the present study is to determine the effect of the process of designing a slowmation (SMA) on the development of 21st Century skills of “learning and innovation” in 4th grade science class “Light and Sound” and “Planet Earth” units. Study group included 44 students attending 4th grade in two private schools in Southeastern Anatolia region. Four female and five male, a total of nine focus students were determined in the study group where the application was implemented. The study was conducted in 17 weeks (51 periods), out of which six weeks spanned the pre-application process and the application lasted for 11 weeks. Different data collection tools such as video records, semi-structured interviews, group audio recordings, 21st Century learning and innovation skills scale researcher and student diaries were used to collect data in the study. Quantitative data were analyzed and interpreted using SPSS software. Qualitative data were analyzed with descriptive analysis. Overall results of the study demonstrated that slowmation application resulted in the development of 21st Century learning and innovation skills, namely creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration and communication skills.
