The study investigates the impact of ICT-driven instructional aids in Nigerian secondary schools. Information communication technology (ICT) has no doubt changed the face of teaching and learning globally. The study observed that, though Nigeria is also making efforts to join the ICT fray, these efforts appear to be ineffective. Nigeria still experience a lag in its implementation due to general neglect and other factors, comprising corruption etc, and this continues to be the major challenge facing access to ICT-driven instructional aids facilities in most Nigerian secondary schools. The study concludes that despite the roles ICT-driven instructional aids can play in education, Nigerian schools are yet to extensively adopt them for teaching and learning. Efforts geared towards integration of ICT-driven instructional aids into the school system, have not had much impact. Problems such as lack of Teachers’ Professional knowledge and technical know how and poor information infrastructure militate against these efforts. The study recommends that efforts should be made by government to post and provide teachers skilled in ICTs to each school to impact ICT skills to the students and also should stabilize electricity supply in Nigeria
