BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Ever since man first started to count and began to appreciate the power of the use of numbers, he has sought ways of increasing the speed with which he handle them. The human brain is a wonderful machine, but occasionally time of processing numeric information is very slow in comparison with computer.
Computer is therefore defined as an electronic device capable of performing a wide range of complex calculation at a very speed. It can add, divided, subtract ad multiply. It can also be used for word processing and generating of report, memorandum as well as other operations that make life easier for man.
The computer developed just over four decades ago, has already becomes necessary in many countries, states, town, school even in an individual homes. Today, there are some places where one will find it difficult to land into without the knowledge of computer. Even no one can land into any job without rudiment knowledge of computer. It has shrunk the world, especially overpast decade with the advent of the microprocessor, the silicon chip and the mergence of microcomputer, which made this new and powerful technology widespread and reasonable, cheap to acquire and use.
Computer not only dominates international communication and information but also has taken over almost all transaction in office, homes and schools. No wonder this age has been described as “Age of information” this implies that by the end of this century, four-sixth of us will be information workers and not manual workers. Our jobs will be of process information and pass along to others, the result of the processing. The emphasis will be on production of information, storage and distribution of information in various forms.
All categories of workers such as lawyers, accountants, journalists, e.t.c. will be ineffective without the knowledge of computer.
Nigeria like any other third world countries is taking up the challenge to meet the requirement of this technological development by embarking on computer literacy programme.
The introduction of computer here means that students at all level of education must be brought into computer with this new and modern tool so that they can appreciate it, use it, understand how it works and learn how to apply it to solve their everyday problems. Jone (1986) for the fact that the educational standard of any nation start from primary and secondary, it will be necessary for computer literacy programme to be integrated into our school curriculum in order to achieve the lofty goal of computer literacy in our country, Nigeria.
