ABSTRACT
In order to enhance sustainable development of the third world, this study examined the effectiveness of Computer-Based Instruction on the attitude of some college of education students in ecology. The study was a quasi-experimental pre-test, post-test control group design consisting of the experimental group that was exposed to Computer-Based Instruction and the control group that received the conventional teaching method. Two hundred and thirty colleges of education Biology students (male & female) participated in the study. Data was collected through the use of Attitude toward Ecology Questionnaire (ATEQ) which was a 4-point likert-type response questionnaire. The students were exposed to six weeks teaching using Computer Based Teaching Guide (CBTG) and the conventional Method Teaching Guide (CMTG) for experimental and control groups respectively. The pre-test and post-test collected were analyzed using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The formulated hypotheses were equally tested. The results showed that the post-test attitude mean scores of the students exposed to different treatment conditions were not significantly different. The post-test attitude mean scores of the male and female students exposed to the different treatment conditions were equally not significantly different. The findings of this research have significant implications on educational practices classroom practice, curriculum planning and implementation in this era of technology advancement.
