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
