All over the planet, demands of the communities and the improvement of people’s life quality are changing fast. While this advance has helped the human race, mismanagement has led to new problems of contamination and pollution. Waste management is becoming more convoluted with the raid of electronic waste. For avoiding such kind issues of e-waste it is necessary to be aware of e-waste and should have the knowledge on e-waste management. Considering this in mind, this study has been undertaken to give awareness about e-waste through visual inputs for student teachers so that it will help them and also the students they are going to teach to be aware of e-waste. For the present study, experimental method was employed and a sample of 36 B.Ed students was selected. The findings revealed that there is significant difference in the post-test scores, delayed post–test scores, and gain scores of B.Ed students in Awareness on E-waste Management Test (ATEWM) with regard to background variables.
