1.1 Background to theStudy
Education is an instrument per excellence for effective national development. It therefore remained a social process in capacity building and maintenance of society. According to Ayo (2011) Education is the process through which individuals are made functional members of the society through transmission of knowledge, skills and attitude. Thus, education promotes better health increases skills and higher productivities, providing chances to live in dignity and make wise and rationale decision about one‟s life. In line with these views, the Federal Government of Nigeria in her National Policy on Education (NPE, 2004) adopted education as an instrument par excellent for affecting national development and steps that education will continue to be highly rated in national development plans.Education, therefore, makes a nation/country to spell out in clear and unequivocal terms the philosophy and objectives that underlie its investment for the development. In Nigeria, it is observed that science education emphasizes the teaching and learning of science process and principles. This leads to fundamental and applied research in the sciences at all levels of education.
Tertiary education is the type of education given after secondary education; also colleges of education are among the institutions that provide such kind of education. The courses offered in the colleges of education as tertiary education institutions include: sciences/technical education in which computer education is among them.
Computer education is of paramount importance to the nation development and it is on this premise that the federal government of Nigeria sought to introduce computer studies in the education system from primary to higher institutions. In line with this NPE (2004) has clearly explain that Nigeria cannot afford to ignore the role which computer literacy plays in achieving the national goals of technological development considering the fact that, educational system around the world face formidable challenges that taxing conventional strategies. Fresh approaches are needed to address persistent problems of the past and provide student with an education relevant to the needs of the modern information based global economy.
Therefore, from the foregoing, based on the importance of computer to teaching and learning, it is obvious that introducing the system can be said to be in the right direction. Fajola (2001) asserts that, the computer is diligent and consistent in its mode of operation to perform multi- functional roles in teaching and learning process at all levels of education. Computer is an electronic device which can hold vast quantities of information and accurate store and information for use. It is capable of carrying and processing input calculation according to predetermined set of instructions. Computer is felt in establishment like banks, power holding company, independent national electoral commission, payroll processing, examination conduction, diagnosing sickness in hospital, engineering and management in general (Mbam, 2000).
