Abstract

Introduction: A Poor vision in childhood affects performance in school and at work and has a negative influence on the future of the child. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of video assisted teaching on detection of visual impairments in children, among teachers of primary schools. Methodology: An evaluative research approach was adapted with convenience sampling. The study was conducted among fifty primary school teachers from five primary schools in Udupi, Karnataka. Result: The finding showed that in the pre-test only 26.0% had adequate knowledge whereas in the post-test, 70% had adequate knowledge and in the pre-test all 50 were unskillful whereas in the post-test only 10 were unskillful. The mean post test knowledge score of teachers were significantly higher than that their mean pre-test score (t=8.93, p=0.001). There was significant difference between pre-test and post-test skill scores (Z= 6.17, p=0.001). Hence the video assisted teaching was an effective method of increasing knowledge of teachers. Chi-square test results indicated that there is no significant association between the pre-test knowledge scores and variables, age, working experience, qualification; source of information related to visual impairments and association was found significant between knowledge score and gender. There was no association found between the pre-test skill score and selected variables and there was positive correlation between the post-test knowledge and skill scores.
