The Use of Electronic Media in Nigerian Educational System: Principles, Practice, Problems and Prescriptions

Agbamuche, Sarah Chinwendu


Electronic media as a tool has created new options for extending and en­hancing education. However, as the number of technologies of e-media in society increases rapidly, so does the rate of misuse. Even the most experienced members may be suscept­ible to unintentional mistakes. Maintaining professional boundaries in all forms of communication, technology-related or not, is vital to maintaining the public trust and appropriate professional relationships with students. Members must be aware of the numerous challenges and the ramifications associated with the use of electronic media. Electronic media is now used formally in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions and informally in Nigeria. However, the use comes with numerous advantages and disadvantages; moderation is therefore the key to ensure that they are not used inappropriately. In formal learning, e-media technologies should be highly maintained to ensure continuity and teachers trained on its usage as well as students. Informally, radio and television stations in Nigeria should develop more time to educational programmes. The internet on the other hand should be used to enhance learning and research and building social interaction among students, teachers, media practitioners and producers in the society.
