Abstract: The goal of this study was to determine the effectiveness of interactive television instruction in improving the problem solving skills of out-of-school nomadic children in Northern Nigeria. The study was a quasi experiment involving 470 out-of-school nomadic children who were randomly assigned into treatment group (n = 235) and control group (n = 235). The researchers carried out the study by exposing the respondents in the treatment group to an interactive television content that was aimed at improving their problem solving skills such as problem identification, alternative generation, consequence prediction as well as implementation. It was found that although respondents in the control and treatment groups did not significantly differ in their mean scores on problem solving skills at baseline, they significantly differ after the treatment with the treatment group reporting a significant improving in their problem solving skills. The researchers discussed the findings of this study and highlighted both the theoretical and practical implications.
