Abstract

This study sought to examine the impact of administrators’ use of ICTs On effective administration in public secondary schools in Momo Division in the North West Region of Cameroon. To achieve the objectives, four research questions were used to guide the study. The survey research design was used for the study. The purposive sampling technique was used to select the schools for the study. A sample of 100 respondents (50 principals and 50 vice-principals) was drawn by simple random sampling technique. A structured questionnaire designed using the 5-point Likert Scale was used to collect data. Provisions were made for respondents’ personal views and opinions. Descriptive statistics were used precisely observed frequencies, mean scores and standard deviations to answer the research questions. The findings revealed that most administrators of public secondary schools in Momo Division use ICT tools like computers, phones, printers, internet, photocopy machines and television in executing administrative duties. They have a positive attitude towards the use of technologies in administration with most of them commending its use for speed, time saving, effective storage and retrieval of administrative documents irrespective of the volume, accuracy, legibility, record checks, and comparative statements for more efficiency in administrative work. Administrators have some challenges amongst them are frequent power cuts, cost of purchase and maintenance of ICT tools and inadequate ICT training, seminars and workshops. It was recommendation that the government and other stake holders should exploit the possibility of providing ICTs to the schools even at lower costs. Also, the government should institute computer training in all teacher training colleges and other higher learning institutions.
