1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
In today’s world, the use of adoption of information technology in teaching of economics in junior secondary schools could be helpful in the task of capacity building therefore; negative view in this direction could constitute a draw back to the achievement of our science and technology objectives (Adetula 2003).
The adoption and application of E-learning in teaching of economics in junior secondary schools has come to occupy an important place in the education sector and national development and indeed the development of the world. This is because it has not only ensured scientific and technological development but it has also opened up more learning opportunities, improved the techniques of teaching and production of E learning materials which reduce time consumption and distance.
Because of the adoption of or use of E- learning in teaching of economics in junior secondary schools today one can communicate in different ways, fully capable of communicating his or her findings from economical enquiry using power points, spread sheets to present graphs of data from around the world moreover, the evolution of technology can be traced from the earlier days of human existence, when our early ancestors learn the benefits of setting in one area to cultivate farm lands and grow foods rather than wonder from one place to the other. Settling down increase population which necessitates the investigation of tools to increase food production that was the beginning of technology advancement.
The computer is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century which has contributed to the service of humanity through its capacity to automate the highly needed respective calculation earlier inventions have necessitated from the history of man existence, it is clear that there has been a continuous search for a way to reduce computational efforts primitive and mechanical tools to speed up calculation during the era of pre-digital electronic computer.
The researcher observed that is not effectively used in our classrooms situations; this is partly because most of the teachers are not computer literate, therefore making it difficult for them to operate E learning materials. The issue of power, which is needed to power the computers, is another problem affecting application in the classrooms.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS
The use of E- learning in teaching economics in junior secondary schools, like any other devices is because of the ability or its capability to store large volumes of data, organize and analyze data accurately in other to produce quality information it has been the rapidly expanding trend. Could it be that there is a problem in E-learning application in economics classroom activities?
1.3 PURPOSE OF STUDY
The purpose of this work is to ascertain the current statues of the use of E-learning in economics. Specific objectives of this work are as follows:
1. Access the extend to which some schools use E- learning in teaching of economics in junior secondary schools and operational activities
2. Find out the advantages of the application or use of E- learning to the teaching of economics in junior secondary schools
3. Identify problems in the use of information technology in teaching situations
4. Recommend ways of using E- learning in teaching economics in junior secondary schools effectively in order to promote the technique in teaching for the growth of the Nigerian educational sector, most especially in junior secondary schools.
1.4 RESEARCH QUESTIONS
The following research questions would guide the study
1. To what extend has E- learning has been used in teaching of economics in junior secondary schools and operational activities
2. What are the advantages of the application of E- learning in the teaching of economics in junior secondary schools?
3. What are the problems in the use of information technology in teaching situations?
4. What are the ways in which the application of E- learning can be used effectively, in order to promote the technique in teaching and learning for the growth of the Nigeria educational sector?
1.5 RESEARCH HYPOTHESIS
HO: E learning materials have significant effects in the teaching of Economics in junior secondary schools
H1: E learning materials have no significant effects in the teaching of Economics in junior secondary schools
1.6 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The cardinal objective of carrying out this research is paramount with respect:
A. The teacher: The teacher will hopefully benefit from this study because it will help the teacher to get a better understanding of and also how it can be used to teach the students effectively, thereby making teaching easier for the teacher
B. The administrators: Also this work or study will hopefully benefit the administrators, because it will make documentation easier for them instead of keeping documents in paper form, they can easily keep it in their computers and they can easily find it when they want to make use of it.
C. The students: This work or study will benefit the student hopefully because it will make it easy for the students to understand what the teacher is teaching, and also the students can also get more information in the internet thereby widening their knowledge.
1.7 THE SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
The research is on the use of E- learning and its importance in teaching economics in junior secondary schools. The study is to enhance teaching using E- learning which provides a safe and non-threatening environment for learning with the flexibility to meet individual needs and the ability of such students. The use or application of internet that is world wide web gives students immediate access to richer source of E learning materials, difficult ideas are made more understandable when communication technology make them visible and effect the power of trying different ideas and take risks, encouraging analytical and divergent thinking (Hansell, 2002:149).
The work is limited in junior secondary schools within Surulere because of lack of time for the researcher to travel to other places of sources of data. And also lack of finance to enable the researcher to transport himself to other various places or cities in the country. However, care is taken to ensure that all data collected for this study are sufficient for the analysis.
1.8 OPERATIONAL DEFINITION OF TERMS
The following term concepts may have other meaning but for the purpose of this study are giving operational definitions. E- learning involves the use of computers and telecommunication devices for requiring processing, organizing, storing and distribution of various types of information used in many fields of human endeavors.
COMPUTER: An electrical device which processes data at a very great speed according to a program stored within the device.
CHIP: Silicon chip is a very thin piece of silicon or other semi-conductor E learning materials. Only a few millimeters square on which all the components of a complete circuit (e.g. a radio, watch, calculator or computer).
CPU: Central processing unit is the part of the computer that controls and co-ordinates the operations of all the other part of the computer. It changes raw data (which is not useful or meaningful) to processed information.
E-MAILS: A system for transmitting messages and computer fuels electronically from one computer to another e.g. computer network over the internet in an office.
KEYBOARD: the part of computer that looks like a typewriter. It is used to input raw data into the computer.
MONITOR: The part of computer that looks like television. It displays raw data and processed information on the screen.
PROCESSING: The production of text using a computer application made for the input processing and retrieval of text.
TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Is the process that allows the transmission of available or visible information over long distance by means of electrical or electronic signals e.g. telephones, radio, TV, telegraph and fax data.
INTERNET OR E-MAIL SERVICES
A computer set to prepare the message
A telephone set for communication
A modem to convert signals from analog signal (telephone) to digital signals which the computer understands.
