Computer education around the globe has taken a new dimension and countries that have integrated computer into class room teaching have succeeded in reducing the deficit of traditional classroom education of late 80s and 90s. 21st century children have a different educational mentality to that of 19th century children and the advancement in technology has indeed changed the narrative. However, the 21st century has some setbacks in computer class rooms’ integration and this seems to be a similar problem with the developing countries. To a great extent, the quest to make the secondary school students use computer in class room has yielded no result in Oredo Local Government Area. This paper examined and conducted a survey on the use of computer in Oredo Local Government Area Secondary School through structured questionnaires. From the survey, it was observed that the Secondary Schools in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State are yet to comply with the 1987 initiative of the then Federal Government of Nigeria to make computer available in all school which in turn, led to the National Computer Policy of 1988. As at today, the Secondary school students are still being taught computer classes without having computer to demonstrate the nitty-gritty.
