A survey on multimedia technology on teaching and learning of physics in Abuja municipal area council’s secondary schools
This research work is a survey on multimedia technology on teaching and learning of Physics in Abuja Municipal Area Council’s (AMAC) Secondary Schools. The sampled schools used for the research had a total 100 students with teaching staff number of 10, this is due to the peculiarity of the subject of the investigation as there are a few science students and also limited number of Physics teachers. The study was carried out among the senior secondary SS2 and SS3 physics students and their teachers. Descriptive survey method was adopted for this study with 8 items on the questionnaire for students and 14 items for teachers. The data gathered were further analyzed and interpreted to arrive at findings which showed that the physics teachers in FCT secondary schools were not fully utilizing the use of multimedia technology in the teaching and learning of physics, there was significant difference in academic performance of students taught with multimedia technology; findings equally revealed that there were shortfalls in availability of these multimedia materials and also observed that the activities in some of the classrooms were not designed for the multimedia technology teaching and learning experience as most of the activities were done with traditional classroom board in some of the schools. Recommendations were suggested that teachers should be retrained to enable them have full access to the knowledge of multimedia technology, the schools should be provided with adequate multimedia facilities so the students could utilize the system, and that there is a need for curriculum review to accommodate the use of the multimedia in the teaching and learning of Physics in secondary schools in AMAC, FCT, Nigeria.
