Many countries including Nigeria regard the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a driver of economic development. However, without sufficient investment in Technology, this would be a pipe (tall) dream. A quantitative research is carried out by administering questionnaires to educators in some schools in Lagos State to determine the effects and challenges of ICT in the Lagos State Educational Sector. Our findings reveal that most of the schools are not equipped with ICT tools but ICT is being used for teaching and research. A major factor limiting the usc of ICT tools is the lack of power supply. Our observation is that government is not giving adequate funding for the general use of ICT in Lagos. We advise that both the teachers and the students should develop personal interest in the use ofiCT.
