Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



This paper focuses on the computer and ICT skills of secondary school teachers in Ota, Ogun state of Nigeria. The purpose was to find out if the teachers were computer and ICT literate and to examine if they employ computers and ICT in their teaching activities. Eighty copies of a self designed questionnaire were administered to teachers in four secondary schools, out of which sixty eight was completed, returned and found usable. The study shows that the respondents are aware of the fact that being computer and ICT literate is very important in their profession. The paper concludes that the Government in conjunction with the Ministry of Education inculcates computer and ICT training into the curriculum of teacher training schools. It also admonishes the Nigerian Library Association (NLA) to rise to the occasion of reviving and establishing school libraries in secondary schools.
