This research emerge as a result of
the researcher’s observation on the use of information communication technology
in teaching Islamic studies in upper basics schools. The scope of the subject
is very wide to be covered within the period of classroom lessons which needs
the use of computer in order to have adequate knowledge about the content by

technology; digital computing, data storage and ability to transmit digital
signal through telecommunication network. These can help the teachers and

Branson (1991) in his own
contribution, stated that student learn not only by the teacher and by
interacting with one another. Indeed, students can learn much more than their
teacher teaches in conventional learning environments for productive teaching
learning process, teachers and students have to use information technologies
according to their requirement and availability.
The sources of knowledge, according
to the Islamic studies as defined by the Islamization of knowledge (2010)

generally considered to be secular in the west, such as Islamic science and Islamic
According to Waliyi (2012) quoting Wishart
(1999) one of the key motivating factors of information communication
technology is its ability to provide appropriate challenges for pupils in all

necessary to embrace information communication technology resources to enable
them acquire current and wider knowledge in these are of teaching. A few
primary and secondary schools in plateau state have computer but are not
necessarily using them to teach Arabic and Islamic studies. In addition there
are some schools in Asa Local Government of Kwara State, that have computer but
they are not using them for teaching Arabic and Islamic studies in upper basic
schools. Even many schools in Nigeria as a whole are yet to embrace the use of
computer for teaching and learning.

into the relevance of information communication technology on the teaching of
Islamic studies in the twenty-first century in our upper basic schools. So,
this will enable the teacher and student of Islamic studies to up-date their
knowledge adequately about them.
