IMPACT OF INFORMATION COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT) ON SECONDARY SCHOOL EDUCATION IN ANAMBRA STATE

Abstract

The study investigates the impact of ICT on Anambra secondary schools. Information communication technology (ICT) has no doubt changed the face of teaching and learning globally. The study observed that, though Anambra is also making efforts to join the ICT fray, these efforts appear to be ineffective. Anambra still experience a lag in its implementation due to general neglect and other factors, comprising corruption etc, and this continues to be the major challenge facing access to ICT-driven instructional aids facilities in most Anambra secondary schools. The study concludes that despite the roles ICT can play in education, Anabra schools are yet to extensively adopt them for teaching and learning. Efforts geared towards integration of ICT into the school system have not had much impact. Problems such as lack of Teachers’ Professional knowledge and technical know-how and poor information infrastructure militate against these efforts. The study recommends that efforts should be made by government to post and provide teachers skilled in ICTs to each school in Anambra State as to impact ICT skills to the students
