Abstract

Qualitative education is a correlate of technological development in many countries. The trend of scholastic studies in technological integration in classrooms have reported better performance from students taught using technology. Integration is mostly done by teachers with a view to improve students’ performance, hence, this study investigated technology integration by senior school science and mathematics teachers in Ilorin, Nigeria. Forty-two female and seventy-three male teachers were sampled.
