Introduction

ICT have become within a very short time, one of the basic building blocks of modern society. Many countries of the world, now regard understanding ICT and mastering the basic skill and concepts of ICT as a part of core education along with reading, writing and arithmetic. However there is a misconception that ICT generally refers to “computers and computing activities”.

According to a UN report (1999) ICTs covers internet service, telecommunications equipments and services, information technology equipments and services, media and broadcasting, libraries and documentations centers, commercial information providers, network based information services and other related information and communication activities.

ICT in education has the potentials to bring about changes in ways of teaching.
