Constraints of Effective Usage of ICT by Students for Learning in Slum Areas in Nairobi, Kenya: A Case of Kangemi Ward, Nairobi

Yash Khapre

ICT has become the face of innovation and is defining the future of the world economy and generations. ICT is used in various sectors of the economy such as agriculture and education. The education sector in particular has seen the rise of innovative technologies that are widely used throughout the world. These include projector screens, smartboards, and most importantly, computers. ICT usage in schools within African countries such as Kenya is slower compared to western countries especially in schools located in slums. Kangemi is one the slums in Kenya and this is where this study will focus on as a case study. Slum areas have unique constraints affecting the availability and usage of computers by school-going children. This research focused on Kangemi Ward within Kangemi slum. The research goals were to identify these constraints that Kangemi was facing. Through field data that was collected, the researcher observed that cost of computers, availability and reliability of electricity, and financial status of residents of Kangemi were some of the notable constraints faced. However, not all of these constraints provided a positive correlation with access to computers by school-going children in Kangemi both at home and in school. Most of the data was analysed descriptively and both quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis were employed.
