dc.description.abstract This study intends to investigate the effect of Information and Communication Technology in education development in rural Bangladesh. It has been noticed worldwide that combine technology in education improved the quality of education. In Bangladesh also, to achieve the desired result of quality education various activities are going on by means of technological support in teaching and learning process. Now to evaluate the effect of computer as an aid in teaching learning process in education this experimental study has been conducted. In total 272 eighth standard students from four schools in academic year 2015, represent the target population of this study in Bangladesh. This pre-test, post test experimental study selected 129 students from two experimental schools, and 143 students from two control schools. The post test General Science result showed that when instruction was given using computer as an aid to experimental group and as the control group received instruction in traditional method the t-test analysis had been statistically significant. The pre-test science score of both group revealed that when the method of instruction is traditional, the null hypothesis had not been found statistically significant. Other factors which may have an effect on students‘ achievement have also been analysed in this study. Factors such as family education level, occupation, number of earning members in family and time spent on study as well as watching television by students are identified as covariate variables and was analysed by cross tabulation and correlation. No correlation coefficient was found statistically significant, except one. So it is evident that Computer Aided learning has an effect on students‘ outcome. And with the help of Information and Communication Technology the quality of education can be improved. en_US
