dc.description.abstractThe study developed and validated a locally-designed E-Workshop Instructional Package (EWIP) for teaching Basic Science and Technology in junior secondary schools in Ile-Ife. The study examined the effect of EWIP on students’ performance in Basic Science and Technology. It also investigated the effect of the package on the performance of male and female students in Basic Science and Technology. It further compared the effectiveness of the package on students’ attitude towards Basic Science and Technology when peer-led and teacher-led; and assessed the effectiveness of the package on students’ retention of Basic Science and Technology concepts. These were with a view to enhancing students’ learning outcomes in Basic Science and Technology in junior secondary schools in the region. The study adopted pretest, posttest control group experimental research design. The population consisted of 4,703 Basic Science and Technology students in junior secondary schools in Ile-Ife. A sample of 96 students was selected from three schools using simple random sampling technique. The students were randomly assigned to one control (conventional method) and two experimental groups (peer-led and teacher-led). Two research instruments namely: Basic Science and Technology Achievement Test (BSTAT) and a Questionnaire on Students’ Attitude towards Basic Science and Technology (QSABST) were used for data collection. The BSTAT was used to collect information on students’ performance and retention of concepts in Basic Science and Technology. The QSABST was used to collect information on students’ attitude towards Basic Science and Technology. The stimulus material, EWIP was used as an alternative to practical session. The package contained pictures and text materials, sessions on woodwork practices. Topics treated were: materials used in carpentary and joinery, hand tools, joints, adhesives and abrasives. The control and the two experimental groups were exposed to the same content. The data collected were analyzed using percentage, mean, t-test and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) statistics. The EWIP was developed using validated lesson manual and multimedia scripts designed by the researcher. The EWIP contained four units of instruction, i.e materials used in carpentary and joinery; hand tools on woodwork; woodwork joints, adhesives and abrasives. It also contained motion / animated pictures for practical sessions. The instruments and the package were validated by Basic Science and Technology teachers, educational technologists and computer programmers. The results showed that the experimental groups that were taught Basic Science and Technology using EWIP performed significantly better than the control group that was taught using conventional method (F = 3.06, p < 0.05). The results also showed that there was no significant difference in the performance of male and female students (t = 0.81, p > 0.05). The results further showed that there was a significant improvement in the attitude of the students towards Basic Science and Technology in the two experimental groups (peer-led and teacher-led) (t = 3.92, p < 0.05). Finally, the results showed that students that were exposed to EWIP were able to retain Basic Science and Technology concepts better than those in the control group (F = 8.38, p < 0.05). The study concluded that the developed EWIP could be effectively used to enhance students’ learning outcomes in Basic Science and Technology in junior secondary schools.en_US
