The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Teaching of Science Education in Secondary Schools in Nigeria (Published)

This study aims to examine and evaluate the influence of incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the instruction of scientific education in secondary schools in Nigeria. The primary objective is to investigate how AI technologies might improve the overall quality and efficacy of scientific teaching, leading to enhanced learning outcomes for secondary school students. The study employs a retrospective research approach, analyzing past data to gain insights into the development and impact of AI in scientific teaching in Nigerian secondary schools. The research design involves a comprehensive collection and analysis of secondary data from educational databases, government papers, academic journals, and other relevant repositories. Results from the study highlight the role of AI in teaching science, emphasizing Adaptive Learning Systems (ALS), Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS), and Virtual Laboratories and Simulations. ALS personalizes the learning process, ITS provides interactive and individualized instruction, and virtual laboratories offer immersive digital experiments. Challenges and barriers to the effective adoption of AI in scientific education include infrastructural limitations, teacher preparation and competence, and ethical considerations. Opportunities for successful integration involve government support, teacher training, and industry partnerships. Future prospects anticipate developments in personalized learning environments, improved data analytics, integration of virtual and augmented reality, enhanced natural language processing, and global cooperation in education. In conclusion, the study recommends the integration of AI into the national curriculum, adequate funding and resources, ongoing professional development for teachers, and a strategic curriculum development that fosters a blended learning environment.

Preponderance of ICT in Fine Art (Visual Art) Teaching And Learning In Nigeria (Published)

Information and communication technology (ICT) is a force that has changed many aspects of human endeavours. The impact of ICT on various fields of human endeavour such as medicine, tourism, business, law, banking, engineering and architecture over two or three decades has been enormous. But when one looks at the field of education, there seems to have been an uncanny lack of influence of ICT and far less change than other fields have experienced. In other words, though ICT has begun to have presence in education, its impact has not been as extensive as in other fields (Collins, 2002). Education is a social oriented activity, and quality education has traditionally been associated with strong teachers having high degrees of personal contact with learners. Garrison and Anderson (2003) opine that the application of ICTs in the teaching-learning process can enhance the quality of education in several ways such as increasing learner motivation and engagement, facilitating the acquisition of basic skills, and enhancing teacher training. Since Fine Art is one of the major subjects being offered at all levels of education; that is the primary, secondary and tertiary institutions, its relevance and sustenance in the 21st century requires the adequate application of ICTs like video tapes, television and multimedia computer software that combine text, sound and colorful moving images which can be used to provide challenging and authentic content that will not only engage the student in the learning process but as well make learning concrete.
