Oyemakinde Festus Boye


ICT can improve access to education and promote evenhandedness by providing sound and enriching educational opportunities to a greater number of people of all ages. This study was undertaken to explore teachers’ skills, knowledge and applications of ICT in class room teaching in the Ekiti State South Western part of Nigeria. A case study research design was adopted for this study where interviews, observations and open-ended questionnaires including document analysis were used to collect qualitative data. The respondents interviewed in each school were mainly Teachers in Sciences, Humanities, Technologies and Business Classes. The findings indicate that teachers are still finding it difficult to shift from manual-teachings to technological leanings in Ekiti State. From the findings of the study, it is recommended that courses such as computer supported learning and ICT’s designing instructional materials should be introduced in initial teacher training programmes to improve teachers’ level of knowledge and appreciation of ICT.
