Abstract

This research examines information communication technology (ICT) integration into school administration: A case study of secondary schools in Ekiti State, Nigeria. The research uses a cross-sectional design. Purposeful sampling was used to select 62 of 141 administrators in Ekiti South Senatorial District public secondary schools of Ekiti State, Nigeria. The instrument used to collect data for the study was a questionnaire while the data were prepared and analyzed using a statistical package for the social sciences (SPSS 22.0) for frequency counts and percentages. It was found that ICT resources were not adequately provided to the school administrators, and that the low usage of computers for their jobs was a result of lack of training in the use of computer and other ICT resources. It is concluded that the administrators of the studied schools in Ekiti South Senatorial District of Ekiti State, Nigeria have not really integrated ICT into their administrative jobs. It is recommended that the Ministry of Education, through the State government, should work with the federal government and policy makers to ensure that ICT resources are supplied to the school administrators. Finally, administrators will need to take part in more ICT training, workshops, and seminars to improve their comfort with ICT resources.
