Abstracts


The study was embarked upon to examine if new shorthand technology can influence effective learning in Colleges of Education in Nigeria. To achieve the aim of the study, one specific purpose, two research questions and one null hypothesis were stated to guide the study using a descriptive survey research design to conduct the study. A total 311 students in a College of Education were sampled for the study. A structured questionnaire developed and validated by the researcher was used for data collection. The internal consistency of the instruments was determined using test re-test reliability technique and it yielded coefficient of 0.81 using Pearson Product Moment Correlation. Data collected through the questionnaire were analysed using Mean to answer the research questions and Chi-square to test the null hypothesis formulated for the study. At the end, the study found among other things that keyscript system has influence on shorthand learning effectiveness among students in a College of Education in Nigeria and that there is relationship between keyscript system and effective note-taking in the College of Education. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) should put mechanisms in place to ensure the integration of the new Keyscript System into the teaching and learning of shorthand to reflect the tremendous changes in the technological world.
