The introduction of ICT into the educational sector shaped new social stereotypes and gender inequalities. The aim of the study is to determine whether there is a significant relationship between gender and educational technology integration in secondary schools in Ogun State and to determine male and female teachers’ perceived usefulness of educational technology. The study is a crosssectional research and adopted a survey research approach. 50 schools were selected across Ogun State using convenience sampling. The schools selected are mostly situated in urban regions where technology (ICT) is believed to be popular. A structured questionnaire was used as data gathering instrument. Data gathered were analyzed through cross tabulations and chi-square using SPSS version –21. Results showed that there is no significant relationship between gender and the use of computer software /games and internet/social media in secondary schools in Ogun State. The use of computer based educational technology by secondary school teachers in Ogun State is evenly distributed between male and female teachers. Furthermore, the perceived usefulness of computer games/software is higher among female teachers, while the perceived usefulness of internet/social media is higher among the male teachers. This shows that female teachers have improved over the years in integrating educational technology as compared to previous relevant studies. The study therefore recommended that female teachers should be further encouraged in integrating educational technology in their pedagogy, most especially in the area of internet and that secondary school owners including teachers should take educational technology integration a bit further. Keywords: Computer games/software, Educational technology, Gender, Internet/social media, Technology.
