ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to investigate the perception of the utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools for instructional material delivery in secondary schools in the Eastern South Tanzania regions. The study explores perceptions regarding secondary school students' utilization of ICT. The target population was extracted from two districts in five regions. Both probability and non-probability sampling procedures were used to select the sample. Headteachers were carefully chosen, while teachers were selected through stratified and simple random sampling. A total of 300 respondents from six secondary schools in Tanzania participated in this study. Primary data were collected using a questionnaire. With the help of statistical software, inferential and descriptive analyses were done. The findings of the study revealed that most of the respondents have positive attitudes toward utilizing ICT in delivering secondary school. Strategies on how to improve the utilization of ICT in the school have been suggested. The greatest result of utilizing ICT in the secondary education system will finally be the economic appliance of Tanzania by preparing students for the innovative technological knowledge-based economy. Recommendations on issues relating to ICT infrastructure and use have been given.
