Impact of Captioned Video Instruction on Nigerian Hearing Impaired Pupils' Performance in English Language

This study investigated impact of captioned video instruction on Nigerian hearing impaired pupils' performance in English language. The experimental group was exposed to captioned video instruction while the control group was taught using the conventional teaching method for the hearing impaired. The study concluded that both instructional strategies were effective in giving English language instruction to hearing impaired pupils, as performance of the two groups did not indicate any significant difference and gender did not influence their performance either. Consequently, it was recommended that teachers should be trained to design and develop captioned video.
