  • M-Learning: Survey on Academic Performance of Undergraduate Students
           During the Covid-19 Pandemic Lockdown in Private Universities in Nigeria

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Inaku K. Egere
      Pages: 1 - 30
      Abstract: The paper investigated mobile-learning and academic performance of undergraduate students in private universities in Nigeria during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. Tertiary education in Nigeria is largely dependent on the traditional face-to-face (F2F) classroom learning but with COVID-19 protocols, there was a significant paradigm shift of learning method. To evaluate students’ performance based on the shift of the learning pedagogy from F2F to m-learning, a social survey was employed and a descriptive research design was adopted which was basically a non-experimental quantitative design in which questionnaire as an instrument for data collection was used on simple random sampling technique to describe their opinions, experiences and attitude. The participants were made up of undergraduate students of the Faculty of Education, Veritas University Abuja and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Catholic Institute of West Africa Port Harcourt, Nigeria. The total population of study was 560 students while a sample of 233 was derived from the total population using Slovin’s statistical formula. A structured and self-administered questionnaire was employed as instrument for data collection. The questionnaire was based on a 4-point Likert type, ranked on the following scale: strongly agree =4; agree=3; strongly disagree=2 and disagree=1 respectively. The instrument’s reliability had a Cronbach alpha value of 0.70 which is acceptable. Two theories were used and three research questions were employed as a guide. Data analysed using frequencies and percentages, mean and Standard Deviations revealed that, the usage of m-learning did not have any significant relationship with the performance of the students but the impact was significantly correlated with the academic performance of students. Therefore, m-learning improved students’ performance. However, this can further be enhanced if stakeholders encourage maximum use of m-learning pedagogy; establishment of ICT hubs with e-learning facilities across the country and development of Nigerian prototype m-learning architecture.

  • Exploring Gaps in Service Quality and Customer Satisfaction in Mobile
           Telecom Business in Tamale Metropolis, Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Africanus L. Diedong, Majeed Abdulai
      Pages: 31 - 53
      Abstract: In Ghana a main issue confronting customers of Mobile Telecom networks is service quality and customer satisfaction. Studies conducted have targeted service quality issues from the service providers’ perspective. This has possibly nudged Telecom network companies to improve their services. The National Communications Authority in Ghana has taken some steps to address the issue. Yet customers seem dissatisfied. The study examined service quality and customer satisfaction of Mobile Telecom services in Tamale Metropolis. The study employed a mixed method research design. The sample size for the study was 401 respondents. Data was sourced from key informant interviews, questionnaires and focus group discussions. The results showed that customers perceived service quality and satisfaction differently. While most Vodafone customers were satisfied with their service, customers of MTN were dissatisfied. The study concludes that some aspects of the operations of both MTN and Vodafone networks require improvement in order to meet customer satisfaction and quality standards. Service providers need to improve service quality through effective application of new technology.

  • Digital Media and Design Practices: The Use and Challenges of Information
           and Communication Technology on Creativity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: George Kushiator, Adams Rahman, Hughes Dompreh Ofori
      Pages: 54 - 77
      Abstract: Since the development of digital media technology, students in design schools and colleges have embraced the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for creativity. However, most of the students have challenges in the use of ICT and this has affected the pedagogy of creativity in education. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to explore the usage and challenges of ICT on creativity. Adopting the qualitative research approach, a purposive sampling method was used for the study. The sample consisted of 150 students from the Communication Design programme. For the statistical analysis, Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to generate the frequencies and percentages of the results obtained. The results indicated that a great number of students had no idea about the use of ICT on creativity. It is recommended that the use of ICT can stimulate students to develop new concepts and ideas for creativity.

  • Quality Mathematics Education Delivery: Circuit Supervisors’ Supervisory
           Practices from the Lenses Of The Ghanaian Basic School Teacher

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Michael J. Nabie
      Pages: 78 - 99
      Abstract: The study surveyed basic school teachers’ perceptions of circuit supervisors (CSs) practices towards providing quality mathematics education delivery in Ghana. Using convenience sampling, 55 basic school teachers (43 male, 21 female) were selected for the study. A 20-item anonymous questionnaire was used to study participants’ perceived views of CSs activities in their schools. The resulting quantitative data from the instrument were descriptively analysed. The results showed that CSs performed their traditional roles of interacting, observing teachers’ practices in the mathematics classroom, and providing feedback intended to support instructional delivery. However, the study revealed that the feedback support provided by the CSs is at variance with mathematics teacher needs for effective practice and contrary to curriculum recommendations. A qualitative study of the CS in action is suggested to complete the story.

  • Effect of Teachers’ Self-Efficacy on Motivation and Performance among
           Selected Senior High School Biology Students in Ashanti Mampong
           Municipality of Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Michael Adiyiah, Mutangana Dieudonne, Yaw Ameyaw
      Pages: 100 - 118
      Abstract: The effect of teachers’ self-efficacy on students’ performance in all fields of educational instruction has been a major concern and of particular interest to many researchers worldwide. Lately, data on Senior High students’ Biology performance has been on serious decline nationwide. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of teachers’ self-efficacy on students’ motivation and performance in biology. Six Senior High biology teachers and one hundred and twenty students from Amaniapong and St. Joseph Seminary Senior High schools in the Ashanti Mampong municipality of Ghana were used for the study. The data collection involved the use of three instruments namely teacher self-efficacy questionnaire, students’ motivation questionnaire and photosynthesis achievement test items. The results were analysed using Pearson product-moment correlation and one-way ANOVA. The findings of the study revealed that teacher’s self-efficacy has a strong and positive influence on students’ motivation and enhances academic performance in biology. The results of this study with their educational implications as well as appropriate recommendations for further research studies are provided and discussed.

      Authors: Michael Adiyiah, Mutangana Dieudonne, Yaw Ameyaw
      Pages: 119 - 131
      Abstract: This participatory quasi-experimental study used concept mapping and its closeness indices assessment scheme as an alternative learning and assessment strategy as a result of inefficient rote learning technique, which fails to enhance conceptual understanding and good performance in biology among some selected students in Ashanti Region of Ghana. The data collection instrument was an interactive 5-Es constructivist instructional model delivery with effective regular use of closeness indices scores and students’ performance test scores in photosynthesis. The analysis was done through one-way Anova statistical tool of SPSS version 21 software. The findings indicated that regular use of closeness indices assessment strategy impacted positively on students’ learning outcomes. It motivated students to think critically leading to better understanding and increased academic performance in photosynthesis among students of different abilities.

  • The Definition of African Folktales Revisited

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Samuel Amanor Dseagu
      Pages: 132 - 145
      Abstract: Many academics and researchers of African folktales in Africa follow Bascom’s (1965) definition of folktales as fiction that is not taken seriously in traditional societies in contrast to legends and myths which are taken seriously. Citing views of some of Bascom’s contemporaries as contextual evidence, the paper argues that Bascom’s definition was contested in his own time. The paper also uses samples of academic papers and dissertations in Africa that follow Bascom’s definition as case study to demonstrate studies that use Bascom’s definition at the starting point invariably contradict themselves later in their discussions when they treat African folktales as tools of education in traditional societies. The paper concludes that the notion of African folktales as fiction that not taken seriously by traditional societies is unsustainable in the analysis of African folktales and furthermore Bascom’s definition of folktales was discredited long ago anyway. The paper therefore recommends that educators in Africa should regard as fallacious the idea of African folktales as fiction that is not taken seriously in traditional African societies and discard it.

  • The Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (Leap) Programme and the Lives
           of Persons with Disability in the Effutu Municipality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Naya Zuure
      Pages: 146 - 163
      Abstract: Countries around the globe have used social protection policies as part of the responses to the issue of poverty. In Ghana, the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme was introduced in 2008 with the aim of providing a safety net for the poorest and most marginalized groups. One category of the groups to benefit from the programme is persons with disabilities. This study examined the influence of LEAP on household food consumptions, access to health services, and children’s school attendance of persons with disabilities in the Effutu Municipality in the Central Region of Ghana. The study adopted the qualitative research approach and phenomenology research design. In all, thirty-four persons were purposively and conveniently engaged in the study. The semi-structured interview guide was used to gather data from the responded for the study. It emerged from the study that, the LEAP programme show positive influence on household food consumptions, access to healthcare, and children school attendance among PWD beneficiaries in the Effutu Municipality. It is therefore important that the programme receives regular review to ensure it achieves its targets or goals.

  • Legal Pluralism and Conflict Resolution in the Kongo Traditional Area of
           Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Naya Zuure
      Pages: 164 - 195
      Abstract: Many societies in Africa recognize legal plurality as colonization led to the introduction and institution of western legal system along already existing indigenous legal mechanisms based on culture and tradition. This paper examined some similarities and differences the traditional court in Kongo has with the modern state-court. The paper also explored the prospects of the traditional court in conflict resolution in an era of modernity and religious proliferation. It was a qualitative study which used the case study design. The chief, four elders to his council of elders, two staff of the state court and eight community members of Kongo were purposively and conveniently sampled and interviewed for data. It emerged that both the Kongo traditional court and modern state court have similarities and differences relative to procedures and focus when it comes to conflict resolution. It was also revealed that the Kongo indigenous mechanism to conflict resolution has great prospects into the future. It was, therefore, recommended that the two court systems in the area should collaborate to leverage on each’s strengths and augment each other to provide opportunities for the people in the area to resolve their cases and have peaceful and harmonious life.
