Abstract:


The improvement of ICT has created many opportunities to the development framework such as financial, health, tourism and education sector. Tanzania as one of developing countries can never avoid such practice of Technology adoption. In this research, we have chosen Technology-Organisational- Envoronmental (TOE) Framework as our reference guidance especially taking into consideration that Tanzania has its specific unique combination which would have significant impact on her ICT readiness. This paper observes critical issues which have been involved in the adoption of Desktop Visualization technology in the Tanzania Education sectors. Among others, we found that only 17% of secondary schools stakeholders are aware of Ncomputing devices. Furthermore, 67% of secondary schools are still using PCs and Laptops in their computer labs and 49 % of secondary school stakeholders do not use Ncomputing because of unfamiliarity of this technology.
