Abstract

The increase in the use of laptop computer in Nigeria with their corresponding incessant breakdown calls for the preparation of competent technicians/technologists to carry out such repairs at the downtime of the appliance. This is one of the responsibilities of technology education programmes. This study therefore determined the practical skills in laptop repairs for curriculum innovations in technical education programmes in Nigeria. The descriptive survey research design was employed by sampling electronic technology teachers and laptop technicians using questionnaire with reliability coefficient of 0.946. The data analysis revealed that the practical skills in laptop repairs are highly required for integration into the workshop practice curriculum of technical education programmes in Nigeria. It was therefore recommended that curriculum planners should urgently seek for experts to design laptop maintenance curriculum for technical education programmes in Nigeria.
