Authors(2) :-Bello Alhaji Buhari, Jude Oguejiofor Nwoji

This research investigates the level of awareness on ICT among secondary school teachers. It focuses on the secondary school teachers in Nigerian context specifically Sokoto metropolis. In undertaking this research, a sample of four hundred (400) questionnaires was distributed to selected secondary school teachers of which 365 copies of the questionnaires were duly answered and returned by the respondents. Hence, these data were analyzed using simple frequencies, percentages and chi-square methods. Conclusively, this research has shown that level ICT penetrating Sokoto state secondary school teachers is growing rapidly. Also majority of secondary schools have ICT facilities. But the level of ICT training to teachers is fair because the difference between trained teachers and untrained teachers is negligible. In addition, very few numbers of teachers are not using ICT facilities in teaching and learning. This is identified to be attributed to lack of proper training on how to use the available ICT facilities and constant power supply. It is recommended that proper training should be continuously given to all staff in all levels on how to use the available ICT facilities. Furthermore, constant power supply should be provided to enable teachers to use these ICT facilities any time required.
