Abstract


With the development of Web 2.0 technologies, the studies conducted in this field are diversifying and quite different results are obtained. In the current study, the contributions of wikis and blogs, which are considered as web 2.0 technologies, to academic performance were examined with meta-analysis method. The studies following quasi-experimental approach and have a control group with pretest-posttest measures published both in Turkish and English are included in the study. In consideration of the criteria determined, 19 studies were selected to be considered for the current study. The studies having participants from nine different countries were coded, and then they were analyzed in a meta-analysis software called CMA. As the distribution of data was heterogeneous, a random effects model was selected and the analysis was performed. Effect size (E++) according to the analysis performed by the Hedge’s g value and 95% confidence interval was found as 0.740. Results show that the impact of web 2.0 technologies on academic performance is positive and moderate.
