Despite the increase in ICT tools in Ghanaian Senior High Schools, most of
the schools are teaching ICT as an isolated subject. Instead of completely integrating
the ICT tools into the educational curriculum to enhance the teaching and learning of
ICT. The objective of this study was, to investigate the effects of ICT facilities on
teaching and learning in Senior High Schools in Cape Coast Metropolis.
A total sample of 200 respondents took part in the survey. This sample was
picked from five Senior High Schools, comprising both males and females.
Convenience random sampling was used to select the students. The instrument used
for the study was a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using SPSS software to
produce frequencies and percentages.
The main findings of the study were that most of the students had access to
ICT in their schools but the real integration of ICT into their curriculum which could
aid in effective teaching and learning was lacking. Student’s skills of ICT were not
restricted to application software. ICT is being used as a pedagogical tool. Students
had very positive perception of the usefulness and ease of use of ICT in schools.
Based on the findings, it was recommended that policy-makers, the Ghana
Education Service, and Curriculum Developers should help provide enough
computers and internet accessibility as well as the provision and maintenance of ICT
infrastructure in Senior High Schools.
