This study investigated the influence of technology on the education of students in secondary schools in Enugu State. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the study. The researcher adopted descriptive survey research design for the study. The researcher restricted the study among the public secondary schools in Enugu Education Zone. The population for the study was 142 respondents which comprised 31 principals and 111 teachers from the 31 secondary schools in Enugu Education zone. The researchers purposively sampled one Education Zone as well as the teachers’ population. The instrument for data collection was a researchers’ developed questionnaire titled “Influence of Technology on the Education of Students Questionnaire (ITESQ) which contained 10 items. The instrument was validated by three research experts. The reliability of the instrument was determined by the use of Cronbach Alpha method which yielded 0.80 for cluster 1 and 0.79 for cluster 2 with an overall reliability index of 0.80 which made the instrument reliable and was used for data collection. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while t-test statistic was used to test the hypotheses at .05 level of significance. The findings of the study revealed among others that technology influences the education of students in terms of students’ records to a great extent. Based on the findings, the study recommended among others that public secondary school stakeholders should make use of educational technologists to sensitize teachers on how to use technologies in the education of students especially in students’ records and students’ personnel management.
