  • 3. Safety against lightning & thunderstorms The lessons are held in a MultiChoice Laboratory which has a DSTV installed system and a central E-Learning Computer System having Windows XP with a 95 centimeters (37.5 inches) LCD Monitor. The students used the School’s SchoolNet having ten working computers for their Internet research & assignment. PowerPoint & Excel 2007 are used with programs I designed to run on them.

  • 4. Safety against lightning & thunderstorms Multi-Choice Lab with Mouse Mischief I have always seek means of making energy transformation and other Physics topics a realistic subject which life processes and existence always passes through as against the common wrong notions by Students both at Secondary schools and higher level that it is abstract and hard to understand. So, integrating technology has been most rewarding in achieving my goal and the assessment from our curriculum standards. Assessment is done from Students level of participation in group discussions and explaining their group work to the class, answering quiz questions, submitting assignments, collecting video clips, and answering questions in “physics drill” and “Physics Fight” which are included in the Assessment and Standards
  • 5. Safety against lightning & thunderstorms THE SCHOOL The project was planned and executed in School for the Gifted Gwagwalada, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) of Nigeria. The school is a public School with about equal number of boys and girls. Their ages are between 13 and 19 years old. Admitted students are from all parts of FCT and other parts of Nigeria. Like the FCT Schools, teachers use chalk board to teach and employ the use of sketches, drawings, pictures etcetera on cardboard as teaching aid. Most teachers prepare their notes and teach the lesson in Class However the School also has a MultiChoice Lab and a SchoolNet Lab for teachers who may wish to carry-out researches and integrate technology into their teaching curriculum THE TEACHERS I first planned this project and use it to teach SS 3 Students. Seeing the impact on them and the success it achieved I then made some modifications and use it to teach my SS 1 students. The SS 2 Physics teacher, Mr. Salami Moses use the same project techniques to teach the SS 2 students. Multipurpose FieldThe Administrative Block Classrooms Block The Lab Complex
