CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background to the study
The entire world has been metamorphosised
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.
This (ICT) Information and
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.
ICT (Information and Communication
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.
According to Olorundare (2006) there
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
school system.
Laboratory was introduced in many
centuries, years ago since then, it had contributed greatly to the wide
knowledge of the teachers and the students.
Laboratory is derived from word
“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
learner inability to problem effectively, develop in children and interest in
and on appreciation for the world in which they like seeing believes and adds
to understand MC Mart (2006).
Statement of the Problems
The research focused on the effect of
ICT and laboratory activities on the teaching and learning of integrated
science in junior secondary schools.
Junior secondary school students have
no expectation in integrated science due to many reason.
It could be that of ICT and due to
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.
Purpose of the study
          The main purpose of study is to
investigate the effects of information Communication Technology on Laboratory
Activities among the Junior
Secondary Schools and
Possible measure to be given to improve the effect the effects and encourage
Laboratory activities for the students.
Significance of study
          The
result of the study would serves as a bent to promote the effects of ICT and
Laboratory activities among the juniors
Secondary School teachers
and the students could as well serve as a forum of enlightenment to the user of
some of the ICT equipments and development like Internet Computer Program (ICP)
to the students and the teachers.
          The
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.
Research Questions
1)               
What
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?
2)               
How
can ICTs be used to combat corruption in the education sector?
3)               
What
are the most successful and relevant strategies for using ICTS to change
pedagogical practices?
4)               
What
are the costs/benefits of situating ICTS for use in schools outside of computer
classroom?
5)               
How
do exposure to and use of ICTS in school affect future employment?
6)               
Are
some school subjects better suited for ICT integration than others?
7)               
How
can ICTS be used to reach out to and teach illiterate youth?
8)               
How
can ICTS be used to present, comment on and discuss student work, and what are
the implications of such implications of such impact?
9)               
What
would be a useful set of core indicators that could be used across countries?
10)          
What
successful models exist for opening ICT facilities in schools to the wider
community?
Research Hypotheses
1)               
There
is no significant difference between the performance of students from schools
with laboratory and those without laboratory.
2)               
There
is no significant difference between the performance of student’s who were
taught with ICT and those who were taught without ICT.
3)               
There
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
knowledge.
4)               
There
is no significant difference in the teachers method of teaching between the ICT
literate and those that are illiterate of ICT and laboratory.
DELIMITATION OF STUDY
          The
researcher work was delimited to a few randomly selected junior secondary
schools in Ikere – Ekiti, Ekiti
State for thorough
supervision.  Four secondary schools used
were both co-educational schools and single sex school both government and
private school.
Definitions of Terms
Information refers to refined data.  It is a message that emanates from a sender,
passing a medium to a receiver for the purpose of carrying out an objective.
Information is got raw, real and can
be operated upon.  It provides what you
can refer to as direct experience.  It
breaks of distance and is capable of audio, visual, audio – visual and other
sensory stimulation.  Communication is
the transmission of information from senders to receiver to senders.  Communication is an interaction process used
to changes or influences the learner’s behaviour toward intended outcomes.
·                   
Technology
is a systematic and integrated organization of man, machines ideals and
procedures to achieve a desired goal. 
Technology extends the ability of human to change the world around him,
it enable him to cultivate shape or put together materials, move thing around
and to utilized the five natural senses.
(smell sight, taste, touch and
hearing) in a most unusual and far reaching manner.
·                   
Laboratory
is a part of the school building set apart for specific activities such as
experimentation manipulation of objects and materials investigation etc.
It is to science
Workshop is to technology where the
integration of a man, machines ideals and procedure is follow to achieve a
desire goal through the ability of a man to change this around world.
·                   
Information
and Communication Technology (ICT) comprises the method the technical mean of
capturing storms, processing, retrieving and transmitting both data and the
information borne by the data thus enhancing man’s technical social processes.
