CD roms and multimedia projector as complimentary educational technology in teaching music in colleges of education in Nigeria
This paper examines the potentials of utilizing Compact Disk Read Only Memory (CD-ROM) and the multimedia projector as complimentary educational technology for teaching music in colleges of education in Nigeria. While recognizing the problem of ineffective methods of teaching in Nigeria's educational system, the study highlights the advantages which both selected technologies would bring to the world of teaching and learning music in Nigerian higher institutions as a whole and teacher education in particular. It went on to provide useful and practical steps on how any music teacher who desires a positive and radical change in his/her approach to teaching could explore these potentials to achieve the desired results. Far-reaching and practicable recommendations, which include promotion and procurement of new technologies, acquisition of skills and their utilization by individuals and various educational institutions as well as the role of government in adequately funding higher education were also made.
