dc.description.abstract Educational broadcast is an effective instructional technology which complements classroom teaching and learning and can also serve as a stop gap for deprived schools that do not have teachers and other teaching and learning materials. The purpose of the study was to investigate how best teachers and students were utilizing educational broadcasting on televisions and radios and its associated challenges. The research design was a descriptive survey. A stratified random sampling technique was used in selecting the respondents who participated in the study. Questionnaires were administered to 310 respondents consisting of 300 students and 10 heads of departments. Descriptive statistics such as means, standard deviations, percentages and frequency tables were used to present the data. Some of the findings of the study were: Important educational programmes were recorded and played back to students. Teachers think educational broadcasting is a necessary complement to classroom teaching and learning and their reasons were: It provided students with first hand information especially if the lesson under discussion in the classroom borders on what students have ever watched before. It enabled students to sharpen their listening skills and also offered them variety of presentations which made academic work exciting. It was also found that some schools did not make any arrangement at all for students to benefit from educational broadcasts but individual students had to find time to watch them. The study recommends that school authorities should slot education broadcasts into the schools' time table to afford students the time to watch and learn from them. Schools should plan their activities during the weekends such that they do not clash with "Science and Maths Quiz" so that students can use just one hour to learn from the programme. en_US
