The Use Of Ict In Teaching And Learning In Seminaries: A Case Study Of Trinity Theological Seminary, Accra, Ghana.

ABSTRACT We are in the technological age and everything including teaching and learning is affected by it. The research was conducted to examine the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in teaching and learning in seminaries through a case study at Trinity Theological Seminary, Accra. The research concentrated on the awareness, the extent to which the available ICT was used, the skills and knowledge, reasons, challenges to and recommendation on the use of ICT among teachers and students. The Diffusion of Innovation Theory was used as the theoretical framework and a Case Study method was adopted whereby residential teachers and students were studied. Interviews and questionnaires were used as instruments for collecting the data. Four (4) respondents were selected from the teaching staff and ninety-eight (98) respondents from the students of the seminary. The findings revealed that both students and teaching staff are aware and use ICT tools in the activities, but the students lack awareness on CD ROM and the e-library which were the main electronic resources subscribed by the school. Other students expressed dissatisfaction with the electronic materials due to lack of subscribed online databases by the school. The study again revealed that, the skills and knowledge in using ICT tools were average, although majority conveyed positive attitude towards ICT use. Low bandwidth, insufficient Internet access, finances and insufficient equipment were some of the challenges that was hindering effective ICT use in teaching and learning at the seminary. Suggestions and recommendations were made to curb the challenges faced at the seminary.
