Abstract—This study primarily investigated the teacher’s
level of 21st Century instructional practice in terms of
multimedia approach in geographically isolated and
disadvantaged areas (GIDA) in 2nd district of Capiz province. A
sample of 159 out of 263 teachers in 61 GIDA barangays served
as respondents. Data were statistically treated with univariate
measures for the profile characteristics, Student’s t test, F-test
(ANOVA), Mann Whiteny U test and Kruskal Wallis H test
were utilized in measuring significant differences on scores
among and between independent groups, and binary logistic
regression for exhausting the predictor variables for level of
multi-media approach as 21st Century instructional practices of
Elementary school teachers in GIDA barangays of the 2nd district of Capiz sometimes use multi-media approach as 21st Century instructional practice. There are significant mean differences on the extent of use of multi-media approach of teachers when their responses were grouped according to their age and grade level handled, and barangay’s land area and distance (km) from town proper.
Some of teachers’ profile variables (age, sex, subjects taught, and grade level handled) and GIDA barangay’s profile (distance (km) from town proper and mode of transportation) significantly predicts teacher’s extent of use of multimedia approach as 21st Century instructional practice.
Index Terms—21st century instructional practices, geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas (GIDA), multi-media approach, rural areas.
