Teachers’ Readiness for Information and Communication Technology in Teaching of Biology in Secondary Schools in Ekiti State, Nigeria (Published)

This study investigates the readiness of teachers for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) integration in the teaching of Biology in secondary schools within Emure Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The research aims to assess students’ performance in Biology, examine the availability and utilization of ICT for teaching Biology, and explore the potential influence of ICT on students’ performance. A descriptive survey design was employed, with data collected from 10 Biology teachers and 90 students across five secondary schools in Emure-Ekiti. The research instruments, Information and Technology Equipment Checklist (ITEC) and Biology Performance Inventory (BPI), were used to gather data on ICT availability, utilization, and students’ performance in Biology. The study revealed a low level of availability and utilization of ICT facilities in the sampled schools. However, the level of students’ performance in Biology was found to be moderate. The findings suggest that the availability and extent of ICT utilization have a significant impact on students’ performance in Biology. Recommendations include government intervention to provide ICT facilities in secondary schools, enforcement of ICT utilization through inspectorate departments, and active engagement of Biology teachers in incorporating ICT tools in their teaching methods.
