TEACHING AND LEARNING EFFECTIVENESS OF INFORMATION COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY

TEACHING AND LEARNING IVENESS OF INFORMATION COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 THE STUDY’S BACKGROUND

Nigeria, like other developing countries, is still in the early stages of incorporating into the teaching and learning processes in the educational sector. Though it is hampered by a number of obstacles, there are numerous factors influencing the use of to improve teaching and learning in Nigerian schools of learning. is a method of capturing, processing, storing, and communicating information that is done electronically.

The use of in the classroom for teaching and learning is critical because it allows teachers and students to operate, store, manipulate, and retrieve information, encourages independent and active learning, and self-responsibility for learning such as distance learning, motivates teachers and students to continue using learning outside of school hours, plans and prepares lessons and designs such as course content delivery, and facilitates sharing of information.

This versatile instrument can not only engage students in instructional activities to increase their learning, but it can also assist them in solving complex problems to improve their cognitive skills (Jonnasen & Reeves, 1996). Pernia (2008) defines as “communication technologies used to create, manage, and distribute information.” She goes on to say that s are broadly defined as computers, the internet, telephones, television, radio, and audio-visual equipment.

She goes on to say that refers to any device or application that is used to access, manage, integrate, evaluate, create, and communicate information and knowledge. This definition includes digital technology services and applications used for communication and information processing functions associated with these devices.

In general, three goals are identified for the use of in education (Plomp et al, 1996):

I The use of as a study object; refers to learning about that enables students to use in their daily lives.

(ii) The application of as a discipline or profession; refers to the acquisition of skills for professional or vocational purposes.

(iii) (iii) The use of as a medium for teaching and learning; emphasizes the use of to improve the teaching and learning process. Drent and Meelissen (2007)

Teachers are, without a doubt, at the heart of curriculum change, and they have complete control over the teaching and learning processes. As a result, they must be capable of preparing young people for a society in which the ability to use to acquire and process information is critical.

Several studies contend that the use of new technologies in the classroom is critical for providing students with opportunities to learn how to operate in an information age. According to Yelland (2001), traditional educational environments do not appear to be suitable for preparing learners to function or be productive in today’s workplaces.

She asserted that organizations that do not incorporate the use of new technologies in their institutions cannot claim to be preparing their students for life in the twenty-first century. Grimus [2000] supports this argument, stating that “by teaching skills in educational institutions, students are prepared to face future developments based on proper understanding” (p. 362).

Initially, information and communication technology () was used to improve efficiency in the educational process. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that the use of in education can aid in memory retention, motivation, and overall comprehension [Dede, 1998]. can also be used to promote collaborative learning through activities such as playing, group problem solving, and articulated projects [Forcheri & Molfino, 2000].

enables the creation of extensive networks of interconnections and interpersonal relationships. Some authors believe that technology has the potential to alter how students learn and professors teach [Kozma, ]. However, despite all of the benefits, the effectiveness of requires further research, particularly in developing countries such as Nigeria, where a number of factors continue to work against the use of .

1.2 THE PROBLEM’S MENT

Basic Technology as a subject has been influenced by s, which have undoubtedly influenced the subject’s teaching and learning (Yusuf, 2005). A substantial amount of research has demonstrated the benefits to the quality of teaching and learning (Al-Ansari, 2006).

s have the potential to innovate, accelerate, enrich, and deepen skills, to motivate and engage students, to help connect school experience to work practices, to create economic viability for tomorrow’s workers, to strengthen teaching, and to assist schools in changing (Davis and Tearle, ;). This study, on the other hand, will look into the effectiveness of in teaching and learning Basic Technology.

1.3 THE STUDY’S OBJECTIVES

The following are the study’s objectives:

I Determine the level of use in teaching and learning Basic Technology

(ii) To investigate the impact of on the teaching and learning of basic technology.

(iii) Identifying the factors limiting the use of in Basic Technology teaching and learning.

1.4 QUESTIONS FOR RESEARCH

I What is the level of use in Basic Technology teaching and learning?

(ii) How effective is in the teaching and learning of basic technology?

(iii) What factors limit the use of in the teaching and learning of Basic Technology?

HYPOTHESIS 1.5

HO: The use of in basic technology teaching and learning is ineffective.

HA: The use of in Basic Technology teaching and learning is effective.

1.6 THE STUDY’S SIGNIFICANCE

The study’s importance is focused on students, teachers, educational planners, administrators, the , and the general public. There are numerous advantages to using effectively in the teaching and learning of basic technology.

The study’s findings will encourage teachers and students to develop skills and competencies in technologies for classroom teaching and learning.

Curriculum planners will be tasked with developing curriculum that will implement effective approaches to -driven education in the twenty-first century in school syllabus contents, thereby improving students’ employability and self-sufficiency.

Teachers’ teaching and learning abilities will be improved as a result of the study. It will also promote student convenience and flexibility through self-paced and time-based learning, as well as increased access to top-tier instructors through knowledge sharing across borders via online internet connectivity.

The Study’s Scope

The purpose of this research is to evaluate the use of in schools in order to determine if they are effective for teaching and learning basic technology. As a result, the study will focus on in Edo State, while teachers and students from senior will be involved in determining the effectiveness of in basic technology teaching and learning.
