ABSTRACT

This study attempted to examine the computer programmes in teaching Oral English in Junior Secondary School with computer assisted language learning programs (CALL) with a view to improving students’ achievement in English Instruction (CELI). The study also attempted to find out the effectiveness of the use of Educational Computer programmes in the teaching and learning of English language. The sample of the study is made up of  ten selected secondary schools  in Ado local government  area Ado Ekiti.  The population of the study  included  students in junior secondary schools II and III both private and government secondary schools. Students’ and teachers’ evaluation questionnaires were used as the instrument.  Findings reveals that teachers are aware of the immense benefits of computer programmes in teaching English. Based on the findings, some recommendations are made.

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

English language is not only Nigeria’s official language but also the language of instruction and reference, throughout the entire educational system. According to Babajide, English language has not only been a central subject in schools, colleges and universities, it also has been gaining increase in the day-to-day human activities worldwide. Thus, competence in English language assumes great importance for students as it directly affects the level of progress attainable irrespective of aptitude in their particular fields.

Okonkwo and Okpara (2007) posit that competence in English language is an essential pre-requisite for educational and career success. As an official language in Nigeria, English is used for all government transactions both oral and written and it is one of the languages in which information is stored and retrieved from computer, hence it is important that the language is well taught.

To teach is to help someone acquire skill, attitudes knowledge, appreciate information or ideas. It includes provision of conditions that can promote the building of attitudes, skills, development and other aspects of learning. In the teaching learning process, both the teacher and leaner must be active.

 

Purpose of the Study

The purpose of this research is to investigate the utilization of computer programmes in teaching oral English. It  also seeks to study the effectiveness of computer programme in the classroom by the oral English teacher.       The WAEC Chief Examiner report on the May/June 2012 as contained in Okafor (2011) stated that many students fail English language because of inadequate mastery of English language grammar, which manifests itself in many forms: bad grammars, lack of coherency in essays, rough expression of ideas. Evidences abound that the average Nigerian student manifests significant grammatical incompetence and that students upon leaving school nowadays could not articulate sound communication, reading, writing, intellectual and information processing potentialities, which are essential English language skills.

 

Statement of the Problem

Given the technological advancement of Nigeria and awareness in the use of computer programs to enhance teaching and learning generally, many junior secondary schools procured computers for use in technology, but having computer is one thing, utilizing it for teaching and learning is another. This study therefore evaluated the use of computer programme in the teaching and learning of oral English in Junior secondary schools in Ado-Ekiti.

 

Significance of the Study

It is hoped that the study will provide information on the extent to which the use of the computer in English language instruction is being achieved to highlight the potential of computer in language teaching. The study will equally serve as a document that could be consulted by those charged with educational responsibilities when planning for future actions on computer education in Nigeria schools and it will further stimulate research and or discussion on the issue of computer education implementation at Junior Secondary level.

 

Research Questions

Do teachers use computer to teach oral English or English language?

How effective is the use of computer programme in classroom teaching of English language?

What are the constraints associated with the effective use of computer programs in the teaching and learning English language?

Is there any difference in the attitude of male and female students towards the use of computer programs in the teaching and learning of oral English, in English language?

 

Delimitations of the Study

This study focuses on the effect of educational computers programs on the teaching of oral English in junior secondary school. It stresses the effect of use of computer on Nigeria students on teaching and learning English language.

The study involved junior secondary schools in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State. It is the evaluation of how computer programs are used in teaching and learning of oral English at all levels.
