                                          Abstract

 

The study investigated the impact of information and communication technology on the performance of teachers in some selected secondary schools in Bauchi local government area Bauchi state, Nigeria. It implored the use of questionnaires as instrument to generate data. Questionnaires administered to one hundred and twenty (120) teachers selected as the sample population, different views were collected, analysed and the findings revealed that, many secondary school teachers do not have access to ICT tools, it was also revealed that ICT training(s) teachers received do not have desired impact on instructional usage, technical supports are lacking in schools and teachers lacked expertise in the used ICTs during lesson. For continued use of ICTs by teachers, it was recommended among others that teachers training and professional development oriented policies should support ICT-related teaching models that encourage both students and teachers to play an active role in teaching/learning activities. And emphasis must be placed on the pedagogy behind the use ICTs for teaching/learning. The study recommended the government should partner with the private organisations to provide ICT tools for secondary schools in the state, and needs assessment should be carried out to determine what type of training teachers need before they are selected to go on training.
