Abstract:


The present study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of biography-based values education program (BBVEP) implemented through the distant education method. Moreover, BBVEP carried out through distant education was also studied in the context of the views of students and parents. A mixed method was used in the research process. In this context, the research was carried out from the perspective of exploratory-sequential mixed method, which is one of the mixed methods. The research was carried out with a total of 34 students, including an experimental group of 16 students and a control group of 18. The qualitative dimension of the research included 9 students and 15 parents. Data on the quantitative dimension of the research were collected through the Tolerance Tendency Scale, Helpfulness Value Scale and Love Value Scale. Qualitative data were acquired through semi-structured interview forms created separately for parents and students. Quantitative data were subjected to t-test, Shapiro-Wilk Normal Distribution Test, and ANOVA; Qualitative data, on the other hand, underwent descriptive analysis. According to the quantitative results of the study, biography-based values education program implemented through distant education did not make a statistically significant impact on the values of love, helpfulness, and tolerance of students. However, there was an increase in the score averages of each scale in favor of the posttest. It was determined as a result of interviews conducted with parents and students that they believed the implemented program was effective and efficient. According to qualitative results, parents generally believe that the study of values education can be performed by way of distant education. Parents and students have positive opinions on biography-based values distant education program. Furthermore, some parents and students noted that the conducted studies were effective in the behaviors of the students, while some parents indicated that their results could be observed in the future.
