The purpose of this research study is to examine the impact of Computer Studies among teachers and students of secondary schools in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State, especially as it affects the teaching and learning process. The authors adopted a descriptive survey design for this study using four research questions which were formulated based on the purpose of the research. The results of the study indicate that Computer Studies has positive impact in the teaching and learning process in secondary schools in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State, Nigeria. From the findings, the computer literacy level of the students was found to be low while that of the teachers was slightly higher than that of the students. The results of the study also show that equipment and infrastructure such as computers and other information and communication technology (ICT) facilities are also needed in schools to facilitate the acquisition of basic computer skills among teachers and students in secondary schools and thereby increase their computer literacy level.
