Introduction: The emerging technologies and the technological advances made day by day are changing the methods and techniques of teaching around us. The technique of teaching has seen drastic changes in the last decade with the new techniques available ranging from Power-point presentation to the video class rooms which converts the traditional class rooms to smart class rooms. Keeping this in mind the present study was planned to compare the two instructional aids.
Method: In this study cross sectional descriptive survey was used. Nursing students were selected through Non probability convenient sampling. The data was collected using questionnaire based survey about their views and perception of two methods of lecture delivery, viz: PPT presentation and using a chalkboard. For each of the two methods, the students were asked to rank nine comments on a four-point scale: strongly agree, agree, disagree, or strongly disagree . The data was analysed using SPSS version 16 and the results expressed as proportions.
Results:In our study where more than 97% of our study respondents emphasized the value of chalk and talk and declared it as the more effective and useful teaching tool in their learning experience compared to PowerPoint (86%) and recommended it for teaching.
Conclusion: The study concluded that both chalk and talk as well as power point presentation are the effective instructional aids in nursing education and both can be used in combination for the effective delivery of classroom instructions
