Descriptive survey design which utilized mixed approach method was used. Questionnaires were administered to thirteen teachers teaching Geography at selected schools. School heads of three schools were interviewed. Purposive sampling technique was used to select teachers for study. The findings revealed that teachers lack knowledge and skills in the use of ICT tools in Geography. They also have no access to ICT tools. In addition there is lack of ICT policy in schools and also no professional development for teachers pertaining the topic.
