Teachers’ Perception of Factors Influencing Internet Use in English Language Classroom in Nigeria
The study investigated teachers’ perceptions of factors influencing internet use in the English Language Classroom. The study adopted descriptive research design. Teachers perceived that lack of internet facilities, language laboratory, teachers’ reluctance to adapt to internet use, low morale of English language teachers, absence of modern software, overcrowded classrooms and poor interest influence the use of internet in English language classroom. The study also found no significant relationship between gender and teachers’ perception of factors influencing internet use in English language teaching; teachers’ qualification has no effect on their perception of factors influencing internet use in English language; no significant relationship exists between the teachers’ experience and their perception of factors influencing internet use in English language teaching. It is therefore recommended that government should endeavour to provide internet facilities in all the senior secondary schools including rural and urban areas for effective teaching and learning English.
