The wireless world continues to grow as engineers develop faster, more robust technologies to free us from wires for greater simplicity, convenience and efficiency. From short range to long range, the wireless landscape has taken shape in our educational system in different ways. E- Learning has been enhanced across different countries and Kenya is not exceptional. We should embrace technology and integrate it to classroom instructions where applicable. Good classroom teaching is a vital part of the repertoire and we must explore its potential. The Information Communication and Technology (ICT) revolution has led to data to be accessed on line or offline. Technology has made the world a global village where people communicate to each other effectively and efficiently regardless of their locations. It is clear that the communication landscape has changed and this change has infiltrated the school system being an open system. The fundamental influence in education today is rapid information communication Technology (ICT) development and what the learner needs to know to succeed in the use of digital content. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the extent to which ICT has been adopted for instructional delivery in Kenya, examine the factors affecting ICT integration in schools and analyze the global trend on ICT use in instructional delivery with an aim of developing learner centered ICT adoption framework for an effective digital content. The paper will specifically explore the impact of ICT in Kenyan schools drawing lessons from the Kilgoris kindle schools project by World reader International and analyze the challenges facing ICT integration in Kenyan Schools. Based on this, a survey questionnaire will be designed and used for quantitative analysis. The paper will test two hypothesis using statistical tools. This will enable the researcher to design a learner-centered ICT framework integration for effective digital content. This will help bridge the digital divide in education through the use of Information technology (IT) as this is the key concern of the educationist in developing countries like Kenya.
