Abstract:
The paper describes Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education as a vendor of high efficiency, high productivity, and high educational outcomes, including the quality of cognitive, creative and innovative thinking. The advantages of applying ICT in teaching and learning have not only led to expansion of learning opportunities thereby making education accessible to much more participants than erstwhile, but have also facilitated advancing knowledge and skills necessary for effective functioning in the modern world. Besides portraying the various ways in which the use of ICT affects teaching and learning, thereby making ICT central to education in the 21st century, the paper discusses the “knowledge maps” that reveal what is known about the benefits of ICTs to education, including contrivances that transform conve- -ntional classroom situations into digital forms that make them more exciting and intellectually challenging. Special attention was given to ICT-based technology for teacher education in the 21st century while proffered recommendations highlight the prospects of overcoming the obstacles confronting the successful use of ICT in Nigerian secondary schools
