BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
and Communication Technology has a role in the learning and teaching tool.
Information and Communication Technology invites both teachers and students in
the learning and facilitation process. Information and Communication Technology
(I.C.T.) has been proven to be a very important aspect of the technology
process. The use of Information Communication Technology by learners offers
enormous potential to enhance learning in all subjects, as well as for Business
Education in College of Education, Ekiadolor-Benin. Numerous studies show that
the quality of learning (e.g. Davis et al 1997) can be significantly enhanced
when I.C.T. integrated with teaching research done by Bransford et al (1994)
showed that I.C.T. can enhance critically thinking information handling skills
the level of conceptualization and problem solving capacity.
technology is supposed to add value to education and to support effective
pedagogy by providing knowledge for learners and by enhancing communication
that promotes learning (Privateer 1999) Gregory Bracewell and Laferrere (1996)
also noticed that the opportunities for networking and collaborative learning
indicate that several principles of theories which promote learning. The
importance of Information Communication Technology aim education has promoted UNESCO,
Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education in Bangkok to design a project
named “preparing the next generation of teachers through I.C.T. This project
aims aimed at assisting Teacher Education Institution in Asia and Pacific
region to prepare teachers on how and when to best use the technologies for
teaching and learning. It is one of the most recent initiative of UNESCO for
professional development of teachers which the organization has supported for
sixty years (UNESCO undated).
effectiveness of I.C.T. depends on how they are used and for what purpose. And
like any pother educational tool or mode of educational delivery I.C.T. do not
work for everyone, everywhere in the same way. It is difficult to qualify the
degree to which I.C.T. have helped expand access to basic education since most
of the interventions for the purpose have been small scale and underported
I.C.T. helps students learn Business by promoting and developing ownership of
their work and the direction they choose to take. This can have a positive
effect on their motivation and degree of engagement in their work. It helps in
their choice of learning styles and so promotes greater independence. Using
Information Communication Technology (I.C.T.) can help students to:
confidence and independence
select and interpret information
reliability and accuracy
with others and present information
creative and take risks
pattern relationship and behaviour
