CHAPTER ONE

   INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Science and technology has become the bedrock for national development. They are yardstick for determining civilized and uncivilized, advanced and backward, developed and undeveloped and developing nations. Notwithstanding the exhaustible potentials and under tapped resources in Nigeria. In the classification of nations in the world, she (Nigeria) is still placed under developing nations based on her level of scientific literacy. Information and communication technology are electronic technologies used for information storage and retrieval. Computer science as it was stipulated by the national policy on education (2004) in Nigeria is one of the pre-vocational subjects mostly in that at end of passing through it should posses an appropriate level of literacy, numeracy, communication ,manipulative and problem solving skills in order to be employable and useful to oneself and the society at large. According to Abimbola (1998) the use of computer in our educational sector is a growing phenomenon because searching for work in internet requires the knowledge of computer. The use computer assisted instruction (CAI) in education also requires in-depth knowledge of computer. The importance of computer in learning processes are increasingly attracting an overwhelming recognition especially as information and communication technologies serve as an indispensible tools and belong to the information and communication technology rich society (Ngene 2001). However, computers are today being used in an extremely versatile way to aid the understanding of a wide variety of subjects (Inyiama 2006).

The role of computer in learning is rapidly becoming one of the most important and widely discussed issues in contemporary education policy (Thirer 2000). Most experts in the field agreed that when properly used, information and communication technology hold great promise to improve learning in addition to

sharpen workforce opportunities. Poola (1996) has indicated that computer illiteracy is now regarded as the new illiteracy. This has actually gingered a new and strong desire to equip schools with computer facilities and qualified personnel necessary to produce technologically proficient and efficient students in developed countries of the world. There is no doubt that computer can aid the instructional process and facilitate student learning. Many studies have found positive effect associated with technology aided instruction (Walner 1996). The problems associated with the learning of computer science includes, unconducive environments, poor learning attitudes of students, inavailability of qualified computer science teachers, lack of instructional materials and unsteady power supply. The researcher therefore has deemed it necessary to find out possible solutions to all these problems in learning of computer science in junior secondary schools in Ndokwa East Local Government Area, Delta state.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The learning of computer science in junior secondary school are hindered with problems such as unconducive environments, poor learning attitudes of students, unavailability of qualified computer science teachers, lack of instructional materials and unsteady power supply. These problems statements stated above are the factors that hinder effective learning of computer science in junior secondary schools.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

The major aim of these of this study is to examine the problems militating against the learning of computer science effectively in junior secondary schools. Specifically, the study was designed to find out how

  1. Unconducive environment for learning of computer science constitute the problem
  2. Poor learning attitudes of students are the problem
  3. Unavailability of qualified computer science teachers are part of the problems
  4. Lack of instructional materials militate against the effective learning of computer science in schools
  5. Unsteady power supply militates against the learning of computer science in schools.

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The findings from this study would be beneficial to the students, teachers, school administration and curriculum planners in the following ways.

The results of the learning of computer science would enable students to think critically, detect bias and exaggeration and open up tremendous range of learning resources at minimal cost if properly planned and managed. By this, students learning is sensed up, sometimes faster than when a human teacher is available. Unlike the case of human teacher, the students can re-learn any portion of the subject matter as its necessary for local mastery guiding him by the type of choice, the results would boost students individually or collectively on different computer concepts delivered by computer experts from different parts of the world using varied pedagogical approaches and resources.

The results of this study would help the teacher use the reserved interest and engage in innovations to improve learning process. It also gives the teachers opportunity to experience growth when they build on current knowledge and understanding (Brewton 2000). The teacher also gains knowledge for course delivery in their various specifications for best results.

The result of the study would help the school administration to update easily due to availability of information content, so the use of computers help the school – administrations in information storage and retrieval of records easily if the operational data is computer based. The school administration can easily collect

raw data about a given situation in order to evaluate, synthesize and reformulate them into a more meaningful manner before being presented to the school. The result will enable to keep firm control of their work paying to a premium in term of time. It also enable them to expand their effort by redeeming the time spent on other chores and shortening significantly by making the experts available to a greater number.

The results of this study would help curriculum planners to serve as tool for thick operational decision making for curriculum changes thus enabling to them to research to the solutions of the students problem more quickly and more accurately then when brain is unaided. The results are also intended to provide enough information which would help curriculum planners to review the secondary school computer curriculum in other to make its learning more effective and efficient.

SCOPE OF THE STUDY

This study is delimited to ascertain the problems militating against learning of computer science effectively in junior secondary schools in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State. This study made use of JSSIII students.

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

The following research questions guided this study.

  1. How does unconducive environment affect the learning of computer science?
  2. How does poor learning attitude of students affect the learning of computer science?
  3. How does unavailability of qualified computer science teachers affect the learning of computer science?
  4. How does lack of instructional material affect the effective learning of computer science in schools?
  5. How does unsteady power supply affect the learning of computer science in junior secondary schools?

HYPOTHESIS

Ho1 : There is no significant difference in the mean responses of male and female students on the problems militating against the learning of computer science.
