This study sought to investigate the use of technology for learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Descriptive survey research design was employed in the study. Participants were primary school children and parents from the rural areas of Muranga, Homabay and Migori. Findings revealed that the radio was the most commonly used technological device followed by the television. Challenges faced by learners included lack of time to study, electricity failure, radio and television usage conflict and lack of internet connectivity. Further, findings showed that despite Kenyan government measures to beef up technology related learning during the COVID Break, little was going on in the ground in the rural areas. The study recommend more sensitization, improvement of reliable electricity as well as creation of simple apps to make learners in the rural areas access educational materials easily.
