TEACHERS’ ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE USE OF COMPUTER SOFTWARE PACKAGEIN TEACHING CHEMICAL BONDING

Abstract

Pedagogy in the 21st century relies on the use of ICT in achieving objectives of 21st century learning. However, experiential evidence shows that teachers do not use computers in teaching chemistry concepts, even as specifically recommended by the curriculum. Reasons for this are often attributed to absence of computers and ICT facilities in schools, teachers’ lack of necessary skills and poor knowledge of how to use the computer and software packages. There are cases however, where the facilities are available in schools and teachers have basic knowledge and skills needed to use the computer to facilitate the teaching-learning process. Expectation has been that the situation in such schools would be different from the rest of the schools, where the facilities are lacking and teachers do not have the necessary skills. This study set out to investigate the attitude of Nigerian secondary school chemistry teachers towards the use of computer instructional software package in teaching chemistry concepts
