    F.I Amadin & A.C. Obienu

    ABSTRACT Many have had high expectations for the impact of computing education on societal development. By and large, these expectations have not been realized. It has become evident that several factors such as learning environment have tremendous influence in the quality of teaching students receive and the extent of attention they pay to lessons in school. This implies that schools with ill-equipped environments hardly put in the best in their students especially in the area of computing. This scenario has been among the primary reasons for low productivity of students in computing.
