Impact of Teaching a Proposed Unit on Successful Intelligence and Augmented Reality in Biology on Lateral Thinking and Science Fiction among High School Students in Al-Saih City, Saudi Arabia

Norah Saleh Mohamed Al-Muqbil


The study examined the impact of teaching a unit based on the Theory of Successful Intelligence and Augmented Reality in Biology on developing lateral thinking and science fiction among high school students in Al-Saih City, Saudi Arabia. To verify the research experience's effect, a quasi-experimental design, the "Lateral Thinking Test," and the "Science Fiction Scale" were used. The research sample included 34 experimental and 37 control students (all high school students). The research tool used to examine both groups' lateral thinking contains 24 questions on concepts, alternatives, linkages, and ideas. Science fiction skills include alertness, flexibility, imagery, daydreaming, retreating from reality, and sustaining direction. The results demonstrated a statistically significant difference (0.05) between the average scores of the experimental and control groups for each lateral thinking skill and the lateral thinking test as a whole, in favor of the experimental group. Also, teaching a unit based on the Theory of Successful Intelligence and Applications of Augmented Reality in biology helps develop lateral thinking and science fiction. The research advocated applying the notion of Successful Intelligence and Augmented reality in high school, based on the study's results, to improve educational outcomes such as "lateral thinking" and "science fiction".
