THE OF LEARNING ON CAREER PREFERENCES OF ADOLESCENTS IN SNDARY SCHOOLS

 

 

ABSTR

The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of learning styles on the career p of adolescents in secondary schools in Lagos State. We used a descriptive survey design. The sample consisted of 150 students chosen at random from three secondary schools in Lagos State’s Ikorodu Local Government Area.

To collect data from the study’s subjects, a questionnaire titled “impact of learning styles on career p” was created. The data collected during this process was analyzed using the chi-square method (x2) and the t – test statistical tool at a significance level of 0.05. According to the study’s findings,

Learning styles have a significant impact on career choices.

There is a significant difference between gender and student learning styles.

There is a significant difference between early and late adolescent learning styles and career p.

There is no statistically significant relationship between learning styles and students’ perceptions of their learning environment.

Early and late adolescent learning styles and career p have a significant relationship.

 

CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 The Study’s Background

When considering learning and how to improve student learning, it is necessary to first understand how an individual learns. Learning is the accumulation of an individual’s life experiences as a result of the socialization process.

It encompasses more than just the acquisition of factual information or the mastery of skills; it also encompasses the sum total of an individual’s life experiences that are relatively permanent in nature and have survival value for him (Mukherjee, 2002). It is widely acknowledged that, while common constituent elements can be identified, the learning process varies at the individual level.

Different people learn in various ways. This is the foundation of learning styles research. People’s learning styles differ depending on their personality type.

A sequential learner, for example, prefers to learn by following steps in a logical order. A global learner will learn by looking at the big picture and putting seemingly random bits of information together. Some people learn better when information is presented numerically, while others learn better when it is presented verbally.

According to Keefe (1987), learning style encompasses all cognitive, affective, and psychological characteristics that reflect an individual’s perceptions of his or her surroundings. Learning styles are important not only for learning but also for navigating our daily lives. Learning styles are p for absorbing information, solving problems, and achieving success in social and personal situations.

They can have an impact on learning and work. Although there is a substantial body of knowledge about how isolated aspects of the physical environment such as temperature, light, and sound affect humans, little is known about how these factors interact.

There is little research on how the overall environment of the school and classroom influences the learning process and style. Learning can take place in a variety of settings, including the home, the playground, and the classroom. Every child brings with him into the classroom all of his prior training and experience, creating a kind of internal environment that makes him an environmental factor of significant importance to others.

A learning environment is thus more than what an engineer can measure in a student’s immediate physical surroundings; it includes everything inside and outside the space the child occupies that influences his learning style during a specific learning routine.

Some scholars and teachers believe that learning styles have little influence on a student’s career choice or academic performance. They argue that academic performance and, ultimately, career p are solely determined by the individual student’s level of intelligence.

On the other end of the spectrum, some academics argue that the value of a good learning style tailored to an individual student’s preferred learning method cannot be overstated. As a result, they encourage students to adopt a suitable learning style so that they can absorb and retain knowledge in a timely manner.

Furthermore, they believe that individuals will be more likely to choose and succeed in a career choice when the job demands match the person’s preferred learning style. As a result, it is necessary to ascertain the true nature of the relationship between learning style and career preference.

 

1.2 MENT OF THE PROBLEM

The inability of students to mobilize cognitive strategies that would aid in effective learning has resulted in poor academic performance.

The evidence stems from a large number of failures in local and national examinations such as the SSCE. As a result, the researchers are curious about the impact of learning styles on career p.

 

1.3 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY

The following are the study’s objectives:

1. To see if there is a link between adolescents’ learning styles and their career p in secondary school.

The state of Lagos

2. To see if there is a link between gender and learning styles among secondary school students.

3. To see if there is a difference between early and late adolescent learning styles and career p.

4. Determine whether or not there is a relationship between learning styles and students’ perceptions of the learning environment.

5. To see if there is a link between early and late adolescent learning styles and career p.

 

1.4 QUESTIONS FOR RESEARCH

a. What is the connection between learning styles and career interests?

b. What is the relationship between gender and learning styles in secondary school adolescents?

c. What is the difference between early and late adolescent learning styles and career p?

d. What is the connection between learning styles and student achievement?

What is your opinion of the learning environment?

e. What is the relationship between early and late adolescent learning styles and career p?

 

HYPOTHESES: 1.5

The study’s goal is to test the following five hypotheses:

HO1: There is no statistically significant link between learning styles and career p.

HO2: There is no statistically significant difference between gender and learning styles among secondary school adolescents.

HO3: There is no statistically significant difference between early and late adolescent learning styles and career p.

HO4: There is no significant difference between students’ perceptions of the learning environment and their learning styles.

HO5: There is no significant relationship between early and late adolescent learning styles and career p.

 

1.6 THE STUDY’S SIGNIFICANCE

When d, the findings of this study will be extremely beneficial to the:

Counsellors:

Instructors

a group of students

‘Parents’

The findings will have implications for Guidance Counsellors in assisting students in making appropriate career decisions based on their talents and abilities.

Teachers will benefit from the study because it will help them understand different learning styles so that they can provide the best learning environment for their students.

 

The research will assist students in developing appropriate learning styles.

The findings of this study will also inform parents about the reasons why students make poor career choices and how they can assist their children.

 

1.7 THE STUDY’S OBJECTIVE

The study’s scope will be limited to senior secondary school students in Lagos state. The goal is to help students progress through the development tasks associated with this stage. This includes learning styles and career choices.

 

1.8 THE STUDY’S LIMITATIONS

This study could be conducted throughout Lagos State, but due to financial and time constraints, it is limited to three selected secondary schools in Lagos State’s Ikorodu n District II.

 

1.9 TERM DEFINITION

Learning style: The term “learning style” refers to the idea that people differ in terms of what mode of instruction or study works best for them.

Career: A person’s path through life (Bloomer and Hodkinson 2000, p.590) in which they take different paths and deal with dynamic changes and transitions (Chen 1998 p.455).

Preference: The ability or power to choose.

Career Preference: The term career preference refers to the factors that influence a student’s decision to pursue a particular occupation, such as his childhood ambitions, relatives, peers, life values, interests and specialization, and school guidance counsellor.
