ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the basic school teachers’ level of computer literacy and attitude to the use of computers. The sample of the study covered 30 basic schools (20 public schools and 10 private schools) in Jomoro District. In all 105 teachers participated in the study. Three research questions were formulated. In relation to the research questions, 4 other statistical hypotheses were also formulated and tested for the study. Descriptive statistics were adopted for presenting and analysing the data in this study. The patterns in the responses from the sample were summarized by the use of frequency tables and percentages. However, inferential statistics was used, where necessary, to determine if the patterns described in the sample can be applied to the population from which the sample is drawn. This formed the basis of the analysis. The study showed that teachers in basic schools in Jomoro District in the western region of Ghana lack fundamental concepts, knowledge and skills for applying technology in educational settings. Another finding of the study was that significant differences were found to exist between males and females in their familiarity with some types of ICT tools. The study also showed that teachers major subject area, and the amount of teaching experience had no effect on teachers’ familiarity with ICT. Finally, the study also found that teachers who teach in Public schools did not differ significantly in their familiarity with ICT tools than Private school teacher.
