Abstract

The research aimed to find out the effect of the use of multimedia and the students learning styles on the students’ achievement in social studies. The data were collected through surveys conducted at SMP Negeri 13 Mataram (public junior high school) for three months. The research involved 108 participants, systematically selected from the target population of 240 students. The data were collected through learning achievement test and then statistically analyzed using ANOVA. Research reveals that the use of multimedia effectively improved students’ learning achievement in both visual and auditory learning styles. On the other hand, the use of conventional media did not show any significant effect on the students’ achievement in both visual and auditory learning styles. The research findings suggest the teachers pay more attention to the use of multimedia in their classroom and take into account the students’ learning styles.
