Abstract

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become a backbone in educational sector for value reorientation and sustainable development in Nigerian schools. Its role has virtually diffused educational system, forcing technological changes and creating a culture of dependence on technology. The role of ICT in education for teaching and learning has successfully changed the social, economic, political and education environments in Nigeria. Undoubtedly, ICT has enabled the globalised world become greatly interconnected and interdependent and succeeded in breaking the border walls. The use of mobile phones, laptops, tablets, IPads, internet services, software, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other ICT tools have become the new culture in academic and other institutions. The aim of this paper is to discuss how to manage educational technology for value re-orientation and sustainable national development. It is recommended among other things that government and private individuals alike should try and increase the accessibility of computer hardware and software to the citizens at affordable prices and also that citizens of Nigeria should be educated on the benefits of educational technology for value reorientation and sustainable development.
