Areas of ICT usage that were investigated included the use of ICTs in learning activities by pupils, the integration of different ICTs by teachers into the various teaching activities, and the use of ICTs in the operations of schools to improve administrative efficiency. Purposive sampling was used to select 70 respondents who actually used ICTs. Self-administered structured questionnaires were employed to collect primary data. The study yielded 90% response rate comprising 42 students and 21 members of staff. Among the major findings of the research were factors inhibiting full integration of ICTs in the teaching, learning and administrative processes.
