The impact of educational resources on the teaching and learning of geography in secondary schools.
The advancing technology worldwide is a challenge to every creature on planet earth. People are thirsty for knowledge and resources to achieve their goals. Resource as the word implies is anything that a teacher can use to enhance a lesson. Resources then lead to the establishment of resource centres. Resource centres are where information or media materials are accessible. This place can keep resources such as computers, audio-visual resources, books and charts. Throughout the world researchers agree that for real learning to take place, learning and teaching must be as stimulating as possible, and this can be done through the use of different kinds of resources. The objective for writing this research report is to investigate the resources available to geography teachers. This project intends to inform all stakeholders in education about the impact of educational resources, in the light of overcrowded classrooms with few or no resources and the recruitment of too few and inadequately qualified teachers as is the norm today in rural areas of Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa.
