The purpose of this study was to investigate students' pedagogical use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the soft and hard factors that influence their use. The participants were 3380 randomly selected students from 24 public and private schools. A quantitative method was used in this study with Likert five-point scale questionnaires to collect data. The study revealed that students' pedagogical use of ICT was low. Most students reported that they were competent in the use of smart phones for educational purposes. The study found that soft and hard factors are interrelated and play a crucial part in students' pedagogical use of ICT. It was interesting to note that ICT competence, access to computers, and the programs students were enrolled in had impact on the results. Copyright © 2015, IGI Global. Source

This paper aimed at determining the extent to which information security governance (ISG) focus areas impact risk management. A total of 81 valid questionnaires were collected and processed using multiple linear regression and frequency analyses. The results showed that 92.7% of the variances in risk management were explained by the resource management, information security and business strategic alignment, value delivery, and performance measurement. Resource management and strategic alignment made significant positive contribution to risk management. Among the most applied attributes within the ISG focus areas, the organizations appreciably implemented policies that address risk management and non-compliance to security risk. However, risk assessment was not frequently and exhaustively performed and security personnel were not adequately trained. The study contributed to the literature by empirically determining the impact of ISG focus areas on risk management, provided organizational leaders better understanding of ISG focus areas, and suggested improvement to ISG practices. © 2014 IEEE.

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate secondary school teachers’ perspectives on ICT usage in secondary schools in Ghana. Design/methodology/approach – A total of 376 teachers from 24 public and private schools from four regions in Ghana participated in this study. Survey and focus group interviews were used for data collection. Descriptive statistics and independent sample t-tests were used to analyze the findings. Findings – The result indicated that teachers’ perceived ICT usage, perceived access to ICT, perceived ICT training and perceived ICT competence were low. Furthermore, the analysis showed that male teachers’ perceived confidence in the use of ICT was higher than female teachers. On the other hand, the perceived administrative support for female teachers was more than that for male teachers. Finally, this study discovered that there was no significant difference in public and private school teachers’ access to ICT, administrative support, self-efficacy, competencies and training. Originality/value – This contributes to the literature on the perceptions and use of teachers’ ICT in secondary schools. The results provide insights into factors that teachers perceived as obstacles to integration of ICT into their teaching, particularly in developing nations. The study shows that teachers’ perceived ICT competencies and ICT training do not depend on the type of school the teacher is employed to teacher. © 2015, Emerald Group Publishing Limited. Source
