Abstract

Instructional material has always been an inevitable tool for effective teaching and learning especially at primary school level. This study investigated availability, relevance and factors impeding adequate use of audio visual resources in teaching and learning in primary schools in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State. The study adopted a survey design. The target population of the study was 6,050 derived from one hundred and eighteen (118) public primary schools in Nsukka Local Government Area. Six hundred and five (605) primary school pupils were sampled out of the population using proportionate random sampling technique. Observation check list and questionnaire were used for data collection. Out of the six hundred and five (605) copies of questionnaire distributed to the respondents, a response rate of 95% was retrieved in a usable form. The data collected were organized and analyzed using percentage and mean. The study discovered that modern facilities such as computer, projector, were not available for teaching and learning in primary schools in Nsukka local government area. The study also revealed that the few audio visual resources available were inadequate to enhance effective teaching and learning in the study area. Besides, the study outlined insufficient fund, lack of skilled teachers, and lack of awareness on the need and use of audio visual resources as some inhibiting factors that militate against adequate use of audio-visual resources in teaching and learning at primary school level in the study area. Therefore, to enhance teaching and learning in primary schools in Nsukka local government area, the study recommends that government, Parent Teachers Association {PTA}, and Non NGOs should provide adequate fund and employ skillful teachers in primary schools.
