The study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of Information Communication and Technology tools viz DLP (Distance Learning Projector) and Computer/Laptop in comparison with selected instructional media for teaching primary and secondary school pupils. It examined the effect of grade on the performance of the pupils taught with four instructional media. 100 pupils from 3 schools in Durg, Raipur and Rajnandgoan districts respectively from Chhatisgarh state, India, were taught three topics drawn from syllabus. The non-randomized quasi-pretest-posttest experimental design was used in finding out which of the pupils in the four experimental groups--DLP, Computer/laptop, Chart and Chalk Talk Method--performed best. The study revealed that the pupils taught with the DLP performed equally as well as those taught with Computer/laptop. The study concludes that ICT Tools were more effective than conventional methodologies in teaching school children learning issues. This confirms the claim of many researchers of the prospective of using ICT Tool as an instructional medium in teaching varying subjects to adults, youths and children in the formal school system. The advantages far overshadow the disadvantages. The four methods that can be used by the teacher were recommended. An organisational structure in each state and ICT equipment needed for effective take off of the ICT programme in schools in Chhatisgarh were suggested.
