ABSTRACT

This research aims to examine the effects of unplugged early childhood software activity on the problem solving and scientific investigation skills of young children. The research subjects were 38 five-year-old children from two classes at the E child-care center in G city. Class A with 18 children was randomly selected as the experimental group and Class B with 20 children was selected as the comparison group. The unplugged software activity was carried out for 4 weeks from April 2nd 2018 to 4th May 2018. It was demonstrated that the children who used the unplugged early childhood software activity had significantly higher problem solving and science investigation skills. The result suggests that unplugged software activity can be a meaningful teaching method in classrooms.
