ABSTRACT

The introduction of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Senior High Schools has been recognized as a medium of revolutionizing the teaching and learning process. This ideology has led to the introduction of computers and internet access in some Senior High Schools in Ghana. This research reports on a study conducted to investigate the use of ICT for teaching and learning in Senior High Schools in Ghana specifically, Nungua Senior High School and Presbyterian Senior High School, Teshie. The study focused on the availability of ICT infrastructure in both schools, the perception of teachers and students on the use of ICT tools as well as the computer literacy skills of teachers and students. The survey research method was adopted for the study. The sample size used was 342, made up of 138 teachers and 204 students. Questionnaires were the main instrument used to obtain information from the respondents. The results revealed that majority of the students and teachers did not use ICTs during normal classes. They only had access to computers during ICT lessons. They also lacked access to functional computers for private studies, training, and recreation. The researcher concluded that the students and teachers could not confidently and creatively use ICT for teaching and learning. It was recommended among others that the schools extend ICT application to other subjects. The research identified some current knowledge gaps pertaining to the barriers and strategies of technology integration, and offers pertinent recommendations for future research. These results are of particular importance to policy makers and school leaders and shed light on the process of ICT integration into teaching and learning in Senior High Schools in Ghana.
