Background: Sexual violence against children is increasing and its incidence may be reduced by education.
Objectives: This study aimed at: 1) comparing knowledge before and after learning from the electronic book (E-book) about sexual violence, and 2) studying satisfaction with the use of the E-book to learn about sexual violence.
Methods: This quasi-experimental study was conducted by employing a one group pre-test and post-test design. The experimental group included 44 grade 6 students. The participants were randomly selected from Nakhon Ratchasima province. Data were collected using a questionnaire before and after the experiment. The questionnaire was developed by the researchers consisting of three parts. The first part consisted of general questions. The second part was a test about sexual violence. The third part was an assessment of satisfaction with using the e-book. The knowledge test and the satisfaction questionnaire had Cronbach’s alpha coefficients of .89 and .91, respectively. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and a paired sample t-test.
Results: The results were: 1) the average score after studying the e-books was significantly higher than before studying the e-book at p=.05 (= 10.66, SD = 4.66, = 15.36, SD = 3.24); 2) students’ satisfaction overall scale was at a highest level (= 4.59, SD = 0.75).
Conclusions: Health care staff and teachers in schools should encourage children to learn how to prevent sexual violence with this electronic book. Children can apply this knowledge to take care of themselves safely.
