Information and communication technology (ICT) has become vogue in curriculum implementation in schools in most developing countries, Kenya included. Its proper usage can motivate students and enhance teaching and learning. This paper is premised on a study whose aim was to assess integration of information and communication technology in teaching and learning Biology in secondary schools in Uasin Gishu County in Kenya. In this paper, the author specifically assesses the availability of information and communication technology resources in teaching and learning of Biology in schools in the area. A descriptive survey research design was used in the study. The target population was 123 secondary schools. The study used stratifying sampling to select a sample of 114 teachers. Structured questionnaire and interview schedule were used to collect data. Descriptive statistics (frequencies, percentage, mean and standard deviation) were used to analyse data. The study findings indicated that the schools lacked some of the important information and communication technology resources for teaching and learning of Biology. The study recommends that the government should provide more funds for ICT materials in secondary schools.
