dc.description.abstract This study seeks to investigate the availability and effects of Information Communications Technology (ICT) on teachers’ ability to perform their duties in terms of teaching and of managing other curriculum-related activities in Groot Letaba Secondary Schools of the Mopani District, Limpopo Province. A quantitative research approach was applied to conduct this research and a structured questionnaire was used to collect primary data from participants in twelve Groot Letaba Circuit secondary schools. Secondary data was collected from a variety of electronic and printed media and official documents from the Department of Basic Education’s records. The findings reveal that, with the exception of a TV, photocopier and laptop/desktop computer, there is a scarcity of ICT resources at schools for ICT integration, and that the teaching and curriculum administration functions of most teachers have been impacted negatively by a lack of ICT equipment and/or insufficient use of these ICT resources for those schools who have them. In addition, while some teachers had received some form of ICT training, it was evident that such training has had minimal impact on the abilities of teachers to use ICT in their teaching or their curriculum administration work. The findings also reveal that there is a host of factors that negatively influence teachers’ readiness for, andconfidence in, using ICT. These need to be dealt with by the various stakeholders including,and especially, the Department of Education and the school management and private partners. en_US
