Technology has been regarded as a potent tool globally with impacts in every sector of society, including the educational sectors. It, however, has many challenges, especially in developing nations. This paper seeks to examine the challenges and impacts of technological advancement in education in Nigeria. It draws critically from empirical literature to examine the role of technology and the education system, especially in the coronavirus pandemic. The study found that many African countries, including Nigeria, have not utilized technology effectively in the education sector. Lack of internet accessibility and availability is a major bane in the educational sector, depriving many children of access to quality education. It is recommended that the government at all levels rise to the occasion by investing in ICT, thereby making it accessible to everyone at an affordable rate.
