Effectiveness of the Use of Gamification by Teachers in the Education System

A Research Project for    Educational Technologist. Deep study into Gamification of a systemSCOPE OF STUDY The  study  is  focused  and  centered  on  gamifying  physics  concepts  to  be  thought  by physics teachers using gamified applications to facilitate a better understanding of the subject by the student. It unveils a new knowledge on how games can affect learning environment, as well as impact gamific...

The need for Information and communication technology in Tertiary institutions curriculum content, implementation as policy and activity in Nigeria.

ABSTRACTThis paper review the need for information and communication technology (ICT) in tertiary institutions curriculum content, implementation as policy and activity in Nigeria tertiary education in order to meet up with the educational goals. This is carried out in respect to the notion with ICT in curriculum, implementation by Koehler and Mishra (2009), Information and communication technology strategy by Johnson and scholes (2004). The paper begins with an introduction of ICT concept a...

Physics Lecturers' self efficacy and use of information and communication technology for research activities in tertiary institutions in Minna, Niger State, Nigeria.

ABSTRACTThis study determined Physics lecturers’ self-efficacy and use of Information and Communication Technology for research activities. Self-efficacy and use of ICT for research activities by the Physics lecturers was investigated. 32 numbers of Physics lecturers were selected as sample from two tertiary institutions obtained by means of purposive sampling technique. The two tertiary institutions were assigned because of the fact that they are the schools within Minna metropolis where P...

Computation of the Earth's Gravity Anomalies of Southwestern Nigeria Using the Gravity Model Equation

This seminar report is meant to determine the Earth’s gravity anomalies of south-western Nigeria using the gravity model equation. This development has led to the formulation of rigorous mathematical analysis. The gravity anomalies data over the area of study are generated from a computer program written in MAT-LAB, which is then contoured to produce a 3-Dimensional anomaly maps.

NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (NMRI)

AbstractThis paper investigates the physics concepts, basic principles, basic procedure, merit and demerit of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging.  As a widely used medical technique, this type of imaging utilizes the inherent magnetic properties of protons in human cells.  Superconducting magnets are generally enclosed in a large housing unit to scan various parts of the body. Although there are no biological hazards yet associated with this technique, extreme caution must be...

Effect Of Laboratory Classes On Motivation And Level Of Achievement In Physics In Nigerian Secondary Schools

This research study was intended to answer a number of basic questions within the given intent of evaluating the effectiveness of lectures with laboratory classes versus lectures alone in teaching higher hierarchies of physics to two sets of randomly sampled student groups, respectively, in Nigerian secondary schools. The following basic research questions were addressed in this study:1. How does the laboratory and lecture affect achievement in physics compared with lecture only mode of instr...

Relevance Of Physics Education Programmes Of Nigerian Higher Educational Institutions To The Teaching Of Senior Secondary Physics

ABSTRACT  In this study, an attempt is made to determine the relevance or otherwise of the Physics Education Programmes of Nigerian higher educational institutions to the teaching of senior secondary physics.            Physics Department of ten Universities selected by stratified sampling technique on the basis of their generation and ten Colleges of Education (Five Federal and Five State), selected on the basis of geographical location,were involved i...

LEARNERS’ BELIEFS & CONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE ROLE OF MATHEMATICS IN PHYSICS

ABSTRACTMathematics is an essential part of what we call physics. It plays an important role in physics research as well as in learning physics. It can be a useful tool or a barrier too high to overcome for some of our students. Only recently this aspect of learning physics has been given more attention. The study presented here makes a contribution to this field of research by providing a first view on students’ conceptions about the role of mathematics in (learning) physics. These beliefs...
