This study was to develop the
application of computer in teaching and learning in junior secondary school in
Ikere local government area of Ekiti
State.  The study answered four research
questions.  The application for the study
comprises of three secondary schools in the local government.  Questionnaire was administered on the respondent
that four points rating scale was used to rate the level of respondents
analysis revealed that the application of computer science in teaching that the
application of computer science in teaching and learning were agreed with by
the respondents.

Background to the study
In recent times, the
world has witnessed a rapid increase in technological innovations.  This era ushered in the advent of the
electronic computer system among other modern technologies.  At present, the computer technology has permeated
nearby all aspects of human organization roles and education.
Computer encompasses
almost all facts of human endeavours.  So
much has been written n it and its relatedness to all areas of human
disciplines which include computer/information technology, engineering,
agriculture etc.
Today, computer
technology in schools is one of the most far – reaching and fast growing
developments in education.  Like maize in
a plantation during a storm, countries all over the world are bending towards
the fad of computer Development in science and technology has brought to line
light the indispensables roles of computer in the area of education.  It is a new instructional system.  The incursion of the electronic computer
system into the education parlance, according to Sherman (2003) provides the where with all
the solve teaching and learning problems even more rapidly and accurately than
hitherto concerned.  This had eventually
made the computer system the doyen of humanity as it continues to exact greater
Computer, according to
Jayesimi (2007) has become the ‘nowology’ in our society and possibly
futuristic years ahead.
In secondary schools,
computers are widely used and the need for computer technology and literacy in
the educational system has become more relevant.  Computer has been found to be an effective
device for presenting an instructional programme.  According to MC Cormick (2008), computers can
be used to diversity, develop and improve the pedagogical relation of teaching
and learning.  Also, technological
development can only be enhanced through proper acquisition of scientific
knowledge, which can only be realized through relevant training in science,
mathematics and computer education.  It
was in this light that the federal government of Nigeria launched and natural policy
on computer literacy of primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education in
1987 with the following general aims:
For the computer to transfer the school system, as there is
increased merger between the computer technology and communication, and
To equip the individual or student with thorough understanding of
the computer in order to fit in to the nejet century
Statement of the Problem
As excellent and
important the computer, it has not really gained its root in our Nigerian
schools let alone the entire society its impact is not strongly felt by all,
especially by our students.
This is because there are
some challenges facing its implementations in our society.  Some of the challenges are listed below.
The challenges of computer
education are both educational and administrative.  The prominent among the administrative
problems is:
Cost: over the years, the cost of computer had been on the high
side.  This has been a different to the
adoption of computer for instructional purposes in most Nigerian secondary
schools.  Coupled with this is the
exorbitant price of software and hardware. 
Where attempts are made o purchase computers for instructional purposes,
the costs of installation, maintenance and replacement re unavoidable.
Another impediment to use
of computer in the classroom could be attributed to the syndrome of resistance
to change among the Nigerian teachers. 
The view the use of
computer in teaching as a means of displacing them form their cherished job
rather than an instructional material to enrich teaching and learning.  Also, they regard the use of computer as an
increase in their tasks in the classroom without adequate compensation.
Death of instructional
facilities militates against the use of computer teaching in learning in the
secondary schools.  Facilities such as
adequate air condition, appropriate computer environment and building are not
Purpose of the study
The purpose of the study
is to examine the following
To find out the effect of computer in teaching and learning in the
classroom settings.
The extent that the teachers uses computer as a language of
instruction in the classroom
To investigate how skillful the teacher is in using computer
In what ways has the computer through internet helped in
increasing the intelligent quotient of the learner.
To make recommendation for improving the use of computer in all
secondary schools
To make recommendation for the curriculum planner.
Research Questions
Is thee number of computer science teachers adequate for the
population in the secondary schools?
How does the pupils perform when taught with the aid of computer?
Can by subject teacher teach computer science effective?
Are the computer science teachers adequately qualified to teach
computer science in secondary schools?
Is there a properly equipped computer science laboratory in the
There is no properly equipped computer science laboratory in the
There is no adequate qualified teachers to teach computer science
in the secondary schools
There is no enough number of computer science teachers in the
Significance of the study
The study will benefit
various aspect of the society in the following ways:
This study will give the secondary school teachers awareness that
computer is not there to displace them rather it is there as an instructional
material to enrich teaching and learning
This research will help the computer science authors for secondary
school to improves the teachers.  Guide
and its content in the use of computer in teaching and learning
The research will engender the teachers to strive to improve their
pupil in computer science
Curriculum developers and curriculum inventors will endevour to
improve on the computer in teaching and learning.
Limitation of the study
This research work focus
on the secondary in Ikere local government area of Ekiti State.
It doesn’t examine
schools in other states, so it may not be highly recommended for secondary
schools in other state due to difference in the race of geographical to pology,
the state economy and so many other reasons.
