Until recently, computers were not only enormous in size. They were slow in processing speed and consumed a lot of energy. They are also costly therefore, the use were exclusively reserved for very rich individuals, the government, multinational companies, and the military. due to the fact that device were not so common, only few individuals in this organizations were trained in the sue of computer.Therefore,computer education was also served for selected individuals in organization and for military personnel.
Today the situation has changed tremendously, computer has been miniatunized.the size of the computer has been reduced, the processing speed is faster while the storage capacity consistence performance have found it use in homes, schools, banks and government offices, to mention a few computer with great speed can process between 600million to 900million in sluctions per second. Computers are used today in power plants, nuclear space station, manufacturing companies and supplicated military installation. There was also a boost to the use of computers following the discover of the world wide web by (Belnex etal 1989).This has given boost to the intent and all its tools which now find its use in e-mail,e-banking to mention a few.
Therefore, there is no gain saying the fact that we are in computer age and expectedly many countries of the western world are now being computer age complaint. It is sad to realized that the third world countries has since lagging behind a catching the higher speed down of computer and information technology
The functional components of computers are broadly divided into two namely, hardware and software. The hardware component of a computer system are essentially the components that could be physically seen and handled while the software component is the set of instruction that are used to direct the computer hardware to perform all task required to manage the whole system and to process data. Computer can be used in research and education, it provides very efficient services when it comes to analyzing data, student use a programmed instruction set on the computer as a learning tools. Such a programmed instruction set is called computer aided instruction (CAT).
The study examines the status of the computer studies education is secondary schools in Ido/Osi local government area.
Statement of Problem
The project aided at investigating the problem of the status of computer studies education in secondary school in Ido/osi local government area
Purpose of Study
Specifically the study will look at the administration of the teaching of two studies. The facilities available for teaching, the personnel for effective teaching, the willingness and enthusiasm of the student in learning and with a view to lookup into possible ways of improving the discipline in secondary schools.
