Citation: Ebenezer Kofi Enninful and Abraham Boakye-Amponsah (2022)  The Influence of Technology Education on the Graphic Design Programme at TakoradiTechnical University, International Journal of Education, Learning and Development, Vol. 10, No.2, pp.30-47

Abstract: It has been observed that the Department of the Graphic Design Technology lacks a wide range of immerging Technologies linked to the Graphic Design Programme. Consequently, students lack of knowledge about most of these new technologies with the current trends is making them fall behind. The study sought to find out the influence of today’s technology on the Graphic Design programme being pursued by Higher National Diploma (HND) students at the Department of Graphic Design Technology. This is against the background that technology forms an integral part of the Graphic Design programme in the 21st century. An in-depth review of related literature from various authors have been discussed concerning the study. Through non-probability purpose sampling, an aggregate of 128 students and 6 teaching staff were selected for the study. In terms of the research design the qualitative approach was adopted for the study. The methodology employed for the study included participant observation and a questionnaire to reveal key findings for the study. That was complemented with proper structured and semi-structured interview techniques to beseech views from respective respondents for practical analysis. Consequently, the findings from the data revealed that technology had had some level of influence on the Graphic Design programme. Based on the findings, the researchers have made appropriate recommendations to help include the contemporary trends in the technology for the Graphic Design programme to prepare students adequately with the requisite hands-on training as the Graphic Design industry in Ghana and beyond demands. However, the importance and the practices cannot be overemphasized.

Learning Effect Based on Socio-Scientific Issue on Students Learning Outcomes in Environmental Pollution Materials in Senior High School 1 of Meureubo, West Aceh, Indonesia (Published)

Biology is part of the natural sciences that discusses all aspects of life, both related to living things and the natural environment that supports the life of these living things. The biotic and abiotic components and their maintenance are important focus on biology learning. Students need a good understanding of their surroundings, maintaining, and controlling existing resources so they can take part as environmental preservation. Learning about the environment should have been designed and implemented with a learning model that is considered very appropriate to arouse interest as well as concern for students using learning models that synergize with efforts to preserve nature and the environment. Wrong on the environment is a learning model based on Socio-Scientific Issues. This study aims to determine the effect of Socio-Scientific Issues learning in environmental pollution learning in class X of SMAN 1 Meureubo West Aceh Regency. The approach used is a quantitative approach with the research design used is “Nonequivalent Control Group Design”. The research data is in the form of student learning outcomes data on environmental pollution material on the application of Socio scientific-based learning issues on learning environmental pollution material. Learning outcomes data are analyzed using linear regression analysis followed by T test and F test. The results showed that there were significant differences in student learning outcomes and students response to the application of a socio scientific based learning model between before and after the application of the model. Through improved learning outcomes and students response to environmental pollution material, it is hoped that this can be a trigger for the movement to protect the environment from an early age.

Students’ Academic Achievements in Social Studies: Any Peer Group Influence? (Published)

This work used the causal-comparative research design to explore the relationship between peer group influence and students’ academic achievements in Social Studies. The sample comprised 160 Junior Secondary School (JSS) IIIA students randomly selected from ten out of nineteen secondary schools in Calabar South Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria. Two instruments were used: The Peer Group Influence Assessment Questionnaire (PGIAQ) on a 4-point Likert and a 50-item multiple choice questions in Social Studies. The instruments were trial-tested and a reliability coefficient of 0.87 obtained. Data generated were analysed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation analysis (r) at 0.05 level of significance. The result permitted the conclusion that there was a significant positive relationship between peer group influence and students’ academic achievements in Social Studies. This underscores the need to study group dynamics from the point of view of the development of students whose needs are, in the main, related to group living. This finding instructs parents, guardians and caregivers to keep a close watch on the companies their children and wards keep as such surely impact significantly on the academic performances of the affected children.
