Information and communication technology (ICT) is defined by UNESCO as forms of technology used for creating, displaying, storing, manipulating, and exchanging information. Effective teaching and learning of science including that of physics can easily be carried out in today’s modern world using information and communication technology (ICT) facilities. To become a great among the committee of nations, Nigeria must change her method of teaching and learning of science education from the traditional way of talk and chalk method. The paper examines on the extent of ICT integration in teaching and learning of physics; attitude of physics teachers and students towards the use of ICT as well as the extent of management and technical support given to physics teachers in the use of ICT. The paper is of the view and concluded that the students perform better when taught with ICT.
