Computers have permeated our everyday life in ways that were inconceivable twenty years ago. These multifaceted machines have changed the manner in which we do things including teaching and learning. In the developed world, using computers in classrooms has proved to be a worthwhile experience leading to a push for provision of computers for schools in developing nations such as Kenya. Policies have been laid out and frameworks developed to cater for provision of computers in schools. The agenda of providing computers for schools is articulated in Kenya’s long term economic plan - Vision 2030; where Kenya hopes to be a regional centre for research and development in new technologies. This study sought to establish the availability of computers and where they are available establish whether Business Studies teachers and learners employ them for teaching and learning purpose.
