PROBLEMS AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS OF TEACHING/LEARNING COMPUTER SCIENCE IN JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN ENUGU EDUCATIONAL ZONE.

ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to determine science in Junior Secondary Schools in Enugu Educational Zone. In order to carry out this study effectively two (2) research questions where asked and answered. Which are; what are the major problems of teaching and learning computer science in Junior Secondary Schools in Enugu Educational Zone and how can such problems be tackled? The instrument used is questionnaire. Data obtained where analyzed are many problems yet to be solved in teaching and learning computer science especially lack of qualified teachers and computer in our Junior Secondary Schools.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

 

Background Of The Study

Education by the end of the 20th century no longer prepares individuals to secure white colar Jobs or life long employment in local industries or services. Rather education is for individuals and National developments. Similarly, the major objective of education is to bring about desirable change in behaviour in individuals and society at large. Abimade (1998) stated that the realization of the noblerole of computer in man’s quest for or comfortable living has today necessitated the introduction of computer as a curriculum in all the levels of our education institution.

        Recently, computer science students was introduced in the state to few selected secondary schools in Enugu education zone in (2000/2001) academic session by education resources teachers by contract from western part of the country. Unfortunately, there are myriad problems that are still hampering the proper take off of the studies in our Secondary Schools in Nigeria at large and Enugu State in particular.

        Some of these problems can be classified as lack of computer science teaches and computer components in our Schools. The  very few teachers that are available were posted to selected urban schools. The result is that computer studies has not started well in Enugu State in as much as it has not been registered in JSSCE examination. Even in urban schools the number of computer teaches are grossly inadequate not to talk of rural schools. That may be why Okeke (2008) stated that he State Ministry of education may only register students in computer studies in JSSCE when the product of Enugu State college of education and other higher institutions may have produced enough teachers to go round the state secondary schools.

        These trained teachers would definitely provide the teaching that one required in the secondary schools.

        Therefore, the statement problem of this study put as a question is:-

 

Statement Of The Problems

How would the Enugu State government produce computer science teachers that could effect teaching/learning computer studies  effectively in our secondary schools?

 

Purpose Of The Study

This study investigated the problems and possible solutions of teaching / learning computer science in Junior Secondary Schools Enugu Education Zone. Specifically the study sought to find out the type of problem and the solution required.

 

Significance Of The Study

This study may highlight the problems that hamper proper take off of Computer studies in Enugu State. These study might suggest the problem of lack of teacher for Computer solutions for the Ministry of Education. The study may provide some adhoc decisions for the principals in the course of teaching Computer Science. It may also suggest possible text books that may be recommended for the students and few teachers.

 

Scope Of The Study

This study focused on investigating the problem and possible solutions of teaching/learning computer science in Junior Secondary Schools in Enugu education Zone. The study used JSS 2 students in Secondary Schools in Enugu, Enugu Education Zone because there is no registration of Computer studies in JSSCE.

 

Research Questions

1.  What are the major problems of teaching and learning computer science in Junior Secondary Schools in Enugu education zone?

2.  How can such problems be tackled?

 

RESEARCH HYPOTHESES

There is no significant difference between the problems of teaching/learning computer science and any other basic science?
