World Journal of Education, v5 n1 p124-130 2015
This is a study of the perception of teachers on the use of television for concept analysis in the classroom. The population of the study is all the 9,784 Secondary School teachers in Bayelsa State of Nigeria out of which 110 teachers were randomly selected using the proportional sampling method. The instrument is a questionnaire designed by the researcher but validated by experts in test and evaluation and tested for reliability using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. It was established at 0.87 which shows that the instrument is reliable. One hypothesis was designed for the study and the data was analyzed using the Mann-Whitney U-test statistical analysis. The findings of the study reveals that there is no significant difference in the perceptions of male and female secondary school teachers on the use of television as an instructional tool for concept analysis in the Secondary Schools. It was therefore recommended that the use of television should be an accepted innovation and should be encouraged to broaden and encourage learning activities in schools.
