This study was carried out to investigate the impact of ICT on the management and performance of secondary school teachers in Kwara State, Nigeria. Three (3) research questions and three (3) hypotheses guided the study. Three hundred (300) teachers who were sampled from three senatorial zones in the state i.e. Kwara Central, North and South were used for the data collection. The instrument utilized was researchers’ designed structured 27 items questionnaire and mean scores were used to test the hypothesis. The findings showed that many schools do not have and teachers do not use the ICT tools in their instructional activities. It was also revealed that the ICT training(s) teachers received do not have desired impact on instructional usage. The study recommended that government should partner with private organizations to provide ICT tools for secondary schools in Kwara State and that needs assessment should be carried out to determine what and types of training teachers need before they are selected to go on ICT training
