E-Learning in Global Education: Challenges and Prospects for Science And Physical Education In Nigeria.
AbstractGlobal Education is concerned with the extent global development issues are integrated into the curriculum, whether formal or non-formal. Currently the innovations in global education are centered on structural shifts in the content of the curriculum, application of ICT and scientific innovations in education, ‘education for all’ including the disadvantaged group among others. The wave of globalization emphasizes knowledge creation and transfer, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity. E-learning is at the centre of global education as it facilitates system consciousness, perspectives consciousness, preparedness and process mindedness, and involvement consciousness. Science and physical education in a developing country like Nigeria need that teaching and learning be electrically supported to face the challenges in out-of-classroom and in-classroom experiences. In the paper the place of e-learning in global education is x-rayed. The states of art in science education and physical education in Nigeria are examined. The challenges facing science education and physical education and the prospects thereof are highlighted.
