Abstract

Green technology education is a process of inculcating awareness and informing people about the interdependency and fragility of life on earth. Exploitation of the earth's resources and abuse of the environment is a significant problem that must be addressed at all levels of society. Thus, the purpose of this research is to develop and test a blended learning module on green technology using QR-Codes to enhance students' motivation and independent learning. The study used an experimental approach designed to investigate the effectiveness of the module, involving 103 students that were divided into two treatment groups and one control group. Students who were taught using the blended learning module showed higher achievement scores with significant improvement in learning motivation and independent learning skills. This study has proven that the blended learning module is user-friendly and makes learning and referencing easy and interesting.
