Abstract

In recent times educational institutions in Nigeria have demonstrated through several designed programmes their desire to queue into the global acceptability of ICT in all cadres of the nation’s educational systems. Not willing to be left out of the digital divide, institutions have been embarking on lots of ICT training through a number of private and sponsored initiatives in order to ensure effective and sustained use of ICT in teaching and learning. This paper explores the nation’s policies in ICT education, implementation efforts, and availability of ICT tools, knowledge, experience and practices in the use of ICT at various levels of teaching and learning. It is believed that if Information and communication technology (ICT) is entrenched in the nation’s educational curriculum there will be higher efficiency, higher productivity, and higher educational outcomes, including quality of cognitive, creative and innovative thinking. Because this paper is a qualitative research and therefore descriptive, data will be seen to have been archivally drawn from existing documents collected and analyzed for better understanding of the subject matter. Finally, the paper recommends that the institution should not only put in place more simple, easy and robust ICT programmes but encourage its entrenchment in the institution to enhance better teaching and learning. Keywords: Information and Communication Technology, productivity, teaching, learning institution.
