It is clear that the Nigeria government is making deliberate efforts toward achieving the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). However this paper is interested in seeing the adoption of ICT-based secondary education for actualizing the MDGs in Nigeria. It touches upon the three dimensions of educational processes namely ‘learning, ‘teaching, and ‘educational environment also focused on the action of learning. Quality education can and should be sought everywhere, and not only in more affluent contexts. ICT integration into educational processes should be part of the effort towards improving them and making the most of available resources, even when these are meagre as in most developing countries like Nigeria. ICT also provides a glimmer of hope towards achieving the goal of quality universal education. The developing country has to find new methods that will dramatically improve both its childrens schooling and its continuing education system. As in every other walk of modern life, the answer to the challenge of education for economic development will be positioned, in part, with technology.
