The aim of this study is to investigate technological competences and technological tools usage by primary school teachers. The inability of primary school teachers to substitute traditional teaching methods with modern technological tools and applications during COVID-19 motivated the researchers to carry out this study. The study made use of a survey research design. Technology implementation and computer use for instructional teachers sub scales were used to collect data. Related literature was reviewed based on skills and knowledge of teachers and the various technologies used for instruction. The samples were 398 teachers who are teaching using ICT and the simple random sampling method was employed to select these respondents. Data was collected from teacher-respondents using tables, percentages, charts, mean, standard deviations and one sample t-test. The results showed an average level of technological competences possess by primary school teachers and types of technological tools used for teaching and learning. These results indicate that primary school educators and instructors lack the competences to install software on their computers and faced difficulties in using more advanced technologies. The study strongly recommends effective in-service training for teachers, easy access and connection to network services as well as the provision of technical assistance to schools. This will enable teachers to effectively acquire skills and knowledge for technology integration in education. Primary schools and teachers should also be equipped with modern technologies especially during this period of COVID-19.
