Abstract

The field of education has not been unaffected by the penetrating influence of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Undoubtedly, ICT has impacted on the quality and quantity of teaching, learning and research in educational institutions. The need to encourage professional educators to continue to involve and enrich their knowledge in the use of emerging technologies cannot be overemphasized. Much as the use of educational technology is indispensable, yet, it is bedeviled by several issues in the Nigerian education system. A reasonable option is not accepting a defeatist stand but to surmount the odds and infuse educational technology fully into the education enterprise for the benefit of all. This paper is aimed at motivating teachers in this direction.

Key words:
Education, technology, productivity tools, information access and learning.
