This study investigated the effect of information and communications technology (ICT) on student’s interest in basic electricity in technical colleges in Rivers State. The interest of students’ taught with ICT was compared with that of those taught with the conventional teaching methods (CTM). Three research questions guided the study while three null hypotheses were tested at .05 level of significance. A quasi-experimental design was used. Population of the study was 123 students. Basic electricity interest inventory (BEII) instrument was developed, validated and used for data collection. Reliability of BEII was .94. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while ANCOVA was used to test the hypotheses. Findings of the study revealed that ICT has significant effect on students’ interest in basic electricity. The effect of ICT and gender combined in students’ interest in basic electricity was significant. It is recommended that government and professional bodies like NATT should organize workshops, conferences and seminars as to train and encourage teachers on the use of this innovative technique.
