Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has changed the way we communicate and carry out certain daily activities. Globally, ICT has become an essential means for disseminating information. Using Accra Technical University in Ghana as a case study, this paper proposes an ICT model called Awareness Incentives Demand and Support (AIDS). Our proposed AIDS model depicts how different ICTs can be integrated in tertiary education for effective teaching, learning and research. Currently, Accra Technical University does not have a resilient means of providing ICT in education. In this study, relevant data was obtained through a quantitative research method involving questionnaires. The questionnaire was developed using the main components of the proposed AIDS model. In all, ninety (90) students and twelve (12) lecturers were considered from a maximum of three (3) schools in Accra Technical University. Samples of lecturers and students from all the three (3) schools were surveyed. Based on the responses received from the participants, the AIDS model was proposed. Successful implementation of the AIDS model practically increased the use of ICT for education by both teachers and students in Accra Technical University.
