ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to explore the impact of the use of a virtual three-dimensional learning environment in teaching Physics on the achievement of the 1st year secondary students and their attitudes toward it. This study was constructed on the quasi-experimental methodology. The study members were 60 students purposely selected from Jerash Secondary Comprehensive School for Boys and randomly divided into two groups as follows: 30 students as a control group and 30 students as an experimental group. To achieve the study’s objectives, two instruments have been prepared: an achievement test and attitude scale. The instruments’ validity and reliability have been assured as well. The study’s results showed that there were significant differences at (α ≤ 0.05) between the arithmetic mean’s degrees of the experimental and control groups in support of the experimental group. The F-value was (65.689) which means rejecting the null hypothesis of the study. In light of the results, the students’ attitudes were positive and high with a of (0.27) and a mean degree of (3.93).
