PCF10 Sub-theme: Inspiring Innovations // This study investigated students' readiness for digital learning in senior secondary schools in Lagos state, Nigeria. Descriptive survey research design was adopted in the study. A sample size of 245 respondents was randomly selected from four educational districts in Lagos using confidence level of 95% (0.05). A Multi stage sampling approach involving both simple and stratified random sampling technique was used to select the students. The sample for the study is made up two hundred students randomly selected across 8 schools in four educational districts in Lagos. A self-developed 4-point Likert-type scale on the research objectives was used as an instrument of data collection and the instrument was thoroughly scrutinized by an expert in the area of ICT. The instrument was validated and found to be reliable. It was personally administered by the researchers. Four research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. Both descriptive statistics such as mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions and inferential statistics as used to test the hypotheses. The findings of the study revealed among others that there is positive disposition/perception of respondents towards digital learning. The study also revealed that there is no significant gender difference in perception and utilization of digital learning facilities among the students. The study therefore recommended that the secondary school administrators should incorporate digital learning as part of the curriculum to enhance the interest of learner. // Paper ID 5882
