Abstract

This study explored the availability of ICT facilities and ICT literacy skills level of senior secondary school students in Delta State. The population of the study comprised 308 senior secondary school students purposively selected from two public schools and two private schools from two senatorial districts of the state. The study employed the descriptive survey design using a questionnaire designed to elicit a response from the students on the available ICT facilities satisfaction with ICT facilities, level of ICT skills, and constraints to acquiring of ICT skills. The different statements were in the rating of, 2, 3 and 4. Data was collected from 308 students. The data collected were analyzed using simple percentages and mean statistical tools. Findings from the data collected identified low ICT facilities in the schools. The study reveals low ICT skills among the students that can deter the students from performing credibly in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). The study also reveals that they are not satisfied with the available facilities. The low level of ICT skills was attributed to lack of qualified teachers in ICT, and inadequate time allotted to it in the school timetable. Recommendations were made to improve on the facilities and needed perquisites that will improve the ICT skills of the students.
