Abstract
Our intention in this study was to investigate if there was significant difference between the teachers’ and administrators’ perceptions on the importance of ICT in secondary school administration and evaluation of the extent of administrators’ use of ICT in secondary school administration. The researchers used descriptive-comparative research design to obtain information on the current status of the phenomenon to describe ‘‘what existed’’ with respect to variables or conditions under consideration. T-test was used to establish whether there was any significant difference in perceptions while a Pearson Product-moment correlation coefficient was used to find whether there was any significant relationship between educators’ perceptions of the importance and the extent of ICT use in secondary school administration. Both teachers and administrators rated the use of ICT in secondary school administration as important and moderately important. Teachers viewed the use of ICT in student administration as important just like administrators. Administrators rated the importance of using ICT in supervision of instruction and in student administration higher. There was a significant difference between the perceptions of teachers and administrators on the importance of ICT use in the following areas of secondary school administration: student administration, general administration and supervision of instruction.
