Abstract

This study examined the challenges and possible solution to the utilization of audio-visual materials in teaching social studies in upper basic schools in Udi education zone, Enugu state, Nigeria. The specific of objectives were to identify the challenges in utilizing audio- visual materials in teaching Social Studies and ascertain the possible solutions to the challenges of utilizing audio- visual materials in teaching social studies. The researcher adopted descriptive survey research design for the study, while the study area was Udi Education Zone, Enugu State. The population for this study comprises all teachers of Social Studies in the fifty-four (54) public secondary schools in Udi Education Zone of Enugu State. The population of teachers of Social Studies is ninety-four (94); 28 male teachers and 66 female teachers. The
entire population was utilized as the sample for the study. Data obtained were collated and subjected to descriptive statistics (for research questions) and inferential statistics (for hypotheses). The research questions were analyzed using frequency, percentages, mean and standard deviation. The hypotheses were also analyzed using independent sample ttest. Data were presented in tables. The results of the study revealed that there is a significant difference in the mean response of male and female teachers on the degree of challenges encountered in the utilization of audio-visual materials in the teaching of social studies and that there is a significant difference between the mean ratings with respect to the possible solutions. The researchers among other things recommended that adequate Funds should be provided by the state and federal Ministries of Education for the purchase of more audio-visual materials. The teachers should also be supervised for proper and effective use of audio-visual materials and that creative and resourceful teachers should improvise equipment and materials to improve learning. Students should also be involved in the improvisation and use of audio-visual materials as they learn more from what they do.
