into a global village by Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
Information and Communication Technology Bloomy Garrison (2008) said that
emanation of ICT has accused a lot of development since 1974s, the internet
which is development is also global system of interconnected computer networks
that use the standard internet protocol suite (Teplip) Technology
Communication. Protocol IP internet
protocol to serve billions of users worldwide.
It is a network of local to global scope that are linked by a broad
array of electronic and practical networking technologies.
Communication carries a vast array of information resources and services
through the internet since it has been discovered that ICT materials are the
people from English country. French,
German etc. among them are the people from English country, Charles Babbage,
Larray Hindes etc notably the inter linked hyper text documents of the world
wide web and the infrastructure to support electronic mail, the origins of the
ICT especially internet reach to the 1960’s when the United States funded
research projects of its military agencies to build robust fault tolerant and distributed
computer networks. The USSR’s Lunch of sputnik spurred the United States
to create the advanced research Projects Agency known as ARPA.
Technology) has been observed by Hastrup (2007) perhaps the greatest
achievement of the 20th and 21st centuries was the
development and application of ICT to all facets of human endeavour. According
to him, no work of sciences has so significantly impacted on the course of
human development as information and communication technology because it had
positively transformed effectively and every aspect of human life such as
accounting, agriculture business, sector, medicine, science etc.
is no doubt that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has found its
in teaching integrated science in developed and developing countries Education
policies and such its use and integration has become, widespread in the various
centuries, years ago since then, it had contributed greatly to the wide
knowledge of the teachers and the students.
“laborate” a Latin word with the meaning labour of work. Also a room or building used for scientific
research experiments, testing etc. in the study of science, laboratory plays an
important role by giving room to memorization from some printed materials but
knowledge as built from experience enhance the growth of the children of

science in junior secondary schools.
no expectation in integrated science due to many reason.
laboratory it is one of the reason. One
would like to ask therefore whether lack of ICT and laboratory activities are
considered by both students and teacher to be a major problem confronting
effective teaching and learning of integrated science. Poor awareness of ICT equipment is considered
by both students and teachers to be a problem facing effective teaching and
learning of integrated science in junior secondary school.

teachers in competence on the basis of computer operation (Keyboard skills
diskette for matting etc.) has gross implications on their inability to use
computer based ICTS, software packages (e.g. self Learning CDS, CD ROMS
statistical/mathematical packages, computer assisted instructional packages,
computer managed instruction (CMI), graphical illustrations conferencing etc. Therefore, the need for computer training of
teacher’s pre – service and in – service cannot be over emphasized.
types of information must be provided to schools to aid in the introduction and
maintenance of ICT related equipment and to promoted ICT related instruction?
can ICTs be used to combat corruption in the education sector?
are the most successful and relevant strategies for using ICTS to change
are the costs/benefits of situating ICTS for use in schools outside of computer
do exposure to and use of ICTS in school affect future employment?
some school subjects better suited for ICT integration than others?
can ICTS be used to reach out to and teach illiterate youth?
can ICTS be used to present, comment on and discuss student work, and what are
the implications of such implications of such impact?
would be a useful set of core indicators that could be used across countries?
successful models exist for opening ICT facilities in schools to the wider
is no significant difference between the performance of students from schools
with laboratory and those without laboratory.
is no significant difference between the performance of student’s who were
taught with ICT and those who were taught without ICT.
is no significant difference in the interest of the students who have
laboratory and the knowledge of ICT from those that lack laboratory and ICT
is no significant difference in the teachers method of teaching between the ICT
literate and those that are illiterate of ICT and laboratory.
