THE IMPACT OF APPLICATION OF E-LEARNING TO THE TEACHING AND LEARNING OF AGRICULTURE IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS
Education today has embraced e-learning to make the learner more personalized/individualized in his studies. It has brought changes that are very convenient and flexible to the learner as well as helped to develop skills and competencies needed in the 21st century to ensure that learners have the digital literacy skills required in their discipline. To this effect, the researcher decided to apply the method of e-learning in four selected secondary schools. A sample of 148 SSI students in Lagos State was selected and grouped into two experimental and control classes. The students in each group were categorized into three categories above average, average and below average according to their performances.
A software package on two selected topics according to their syllabus was developed and applied along with a conventional test as research instruments. A 4 week lesson plan was drawn the experimental class was taught using the software package while the control class was taught using the conventional method for both topics.
The t-test and chi-square (x2) statistical packages were used to test the null hypothesis. The result showed that the experimented class performed better than the conventional class, the students that were in the below average category in the pre-test moved to the average and above average categories.
This has the implication of transforming the educational standards by providing unlimited access to knowledge and information to teachers and learners.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Today, the society is witnessing a major change in all aspects of life which has affected our houses, businesses and our educational system. Technology has emerged with our curriculum to create a learning atmosphere that allows learners to become more responsible and individualized/personalized in their studies.
The continuous societal changes denoted a need for the educational system to embrace these changes. According to Igwe (2005) “development in everyday language refers to qualitative improvement which is a continuous activity among human beings” The societal changes have affected the schools, the teachers, the learners and the disciplines or subjects taught in schools and this have resulted in the overall curriculum change. All these changes have made it necessary for educators and learners to adopt in other to meet up with the demands of the modern society. Therefore the educational system should move along with the rest of the world as it is a change agent.
Today, it is necessary for someone to have a basic knowledge of the computer in other to function properly. This has brought modernization into our educational system and part of this is the electronic learning.
The launch of the World Wide Web (www) in 1999 brought a surge of interest in the possibilities of electronic learning (e-learning). According to Okeke (2007) “The use of the web as an educational medium was hailed as a major change in the educational sector. It has given rise to a major form of delivery of education or as a combined approach with the old conventional method of classroom based teaching.
E- Learning is computer enhanced and applies to online lectures, tutorial, performance support system stimulations. It is an approach to facilitate and enhance learning through both computers and communication technology. Devices such as personal computers (pc), CD Roms, televisions, Mp3 players and mobile phones are used. Communication technology enables the use of the internet and e-mail discussions.
Lee (2004) noted that the increasing use of internet improved technologies as well as web based applications, the uses of e-learning in the educational sector are of immense benefits. As written by Ajelabi (2005), it motives students to operate modern teaching equipments like microcomputers and other teaching aids like projectors (overhead and opaque) slides, films etc).
By now, over a decade of it launch, it is expected that the concept of e-learning should be clearly defined. Due to attitudinal problems in the use of e-learning for teaching and learning of disciplines in the school curriculum, there is yet to be a consensus about what it actually represents. It is important that the method of teaching and learning should also change to meet with the changing societal needs.
Based on the above background, the task before the researcher is to find out the impact of the application of e-learning on the teaching and learning of Agricultural science among the senior secondary school students in Okota Isolo / Oshodi Local Government Area and Ejigbo Development Area of Lagos State.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The school curriculum has to be responsive to changing societal needs. The students also have to adapt to these needs and often the effects are noticed on the performance of students who are usually the receivers.
In today’s world, technology has made it necessary to use the various forms of computer delivered instruction in teaching and learning. It becomes necessary to study the impact of e-learning on the teaching e-learning learning of Agricultural science.
1.3 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of this study is for the researcher to achieve experimentally the following objectives:-
1.4SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY.
The study is significant in that it gives an insight into the knowledge of using software packages and its workability on the educational system.
The result will encourage the teachers to know the benefit of using the alternative method of teaching to achieve an improved performance. It will create an awareness to the teacher and the student on the possibility of using e-learning approach.
1.5 RESEARCH QUESTIONS
The research is aimed at answering the following questions:-
The following hypothesis have been postulated for testing:-
1..H0IThere is no statistically significant difference in the academic performance of students taught with e-learning facilities and those taught with the conventional method.
3.H03 : These is no statistically significant difference in the performance of boys and girls taught with the e-learning method.
1.7 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
For the purpose of this research and the successful application of the e-learning facilities, the scope is one hundred and forty eight (148) SS1 students made up of forty (40) each from Ostra Heights school and Hopebay College, both in Okota, Isolo/ OShodi Local Government Area of Lagos State while thirty five (35) students came from Kings Palace school and thirty three (33) students came from Hill Crest college both in Ejigbo Development Council.
1.8 LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
The researcher was limited by finance both for transportation to the schools and production of the instructional package. Also time for the study was limited.
