ABSTRACT:
Children are the future of every country and all societies strive to ensure their health and safety. Most of the accidents occur among the children during the age group of 5 to14, when they spend most of their time in the school campus. First aid is applied to injured or ill persons in any health threatening settings in order to save life, prevent degradation of the situation or contribute to a treatment process before professional medical care is available. This refers to assessments and interventions that can be performed by a bystander (or by the victim) with minimal or no medical equipment. Objectives were To assess the knowledge of School children regarding First aid and safety measures before and after the administration of computer assisted teaching, evaluate the effectiveness of computer assisted teaching by comparing pretest and posttest knowledge scores of School children. To identify the association between selected socio demographic variables and pretest knowledge scores. For this study methodology adopted for Assess the effectiveness of computer assisted teaching on knowledge regarding first aid and safety measures among schoolchildren in selected schools in Ramanagaram, design adopted wad quantitative research design. The independent variable was computer assisted teaching regarding first aid and safety measures among school children in universal public school at Ramanagaram. The study was conducted in universal public school at Ramanagaram. They were 80 school children. Simple random sampling technique was used to collect sample. The tool used for data collection was a structured knowledge questionnaire. The frequency and percentage distribution of study subjects according to their age groups in years. Out of 80 children 41(51.25%) of the children were in the age group of 12 year, 28 (35.0%) were in the age group of 11 years and 11 (13.75%) were in the age group of 13. according to their Sex. 43 (53.75%) of the children were in Female, 37 (46.25%) were in Male, Based on Religion 46(57.5%) of the children were in Hindu, 20 (25.0%) were in Muslim, 10(12.5%) were in Christian and 04(5%) were in others. subjects according to their Type of family. 61(76.25%) of the children were in the Nuclear family, 19 (23.75%) were in Joint family, based on their Area of living. 26(32.5%) of the children were in Rural area and 54(67.5%) were inUrban area, Income of the family 26(32.5%) of the children were belongs to15001-20000,21(26.25%) were belongs to above 25000, 18(22.5%) were belongs to 10001 -15000 and15(18.75%) were belongs to 5000 to 10000, Education of the Father. 24(30%) of the fathers were in high school, 21(26.25%) were in Graduation and above, 19(23.75%) were Primary school and 16(20%) were in Illiterate, base on Education of the Mothers.26(32.5%) of the Mothers were in high school, 21(26.25%) were in Primary school,19(23.75%) were Illiterate and 14(17.5%) were in Graduation, according to their Medium of education 59(73.75%) of the were English medium, 21(26.25%) were in Kannada medium and Source of information. Out of 80 children 30(37.5%) of the children were from school, 21(26.25%) were from health professionals, 17(21.25%) were from television/mass media and 12(15%) were from internet. The pre-test level of knowledge on first aid and safety measures among schoolchildren, In 80 samples majority of them had poor Knowledge regarding first aid and safety measures and in post-test level of knowledge majority of 54(67.5%) of children had good knowledge regarding first aid and safety measures among children. The comparison of overall knowledge score between pre- test and post-test. On an average, in pre-test, children mean having 16.31 score and in post- test, children mean having 31.05 score. Difference is 14.73 score. The difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge score is large and it is statistically significant. It means in post-test theyare able to answer 15 questions more than pre-test. Differences between pre-test and post-test score were analyzed using paired t-test. The effectiveness of the computer assisted teaching. Considering the overall aspects, children are gained 36.8 percent more knowledge after the administration of computer assisted teaching. This 36.8 percent of knowledge gained by effectiveness of computer assisted teaching. The students are gained knowledge through computer assisted teaching not by chance, so here the null hypothesis is rejected and research hypothesis is accepted. The obtained ?2 value is greater than the table value at 0.05 levels of significance. Therefore there is significant association between Sex, Education of the mother and sources of information on first aid safety measures with the pre test knowledge scores. The above table shows that the obtained ?2 value is less than the table value at0.05 levels of significance. Therefore there is no significant association between selected demographic variables such as Age, Religion, Type of family, Area of living, income, Education of the father, and Medium of education with the pre test knowledge scores. The present study attempted to assess the computer assisted teaching on First aid and safety measures among school children and concluded that there was a significant improvement in the knowledge after computer assisted teaching. Thus computer assisted teaching is effective in improving the knowledge of school children.
