The internet is one technology that is fast becoming a household necessity. It is a global system that connects several computers and enables them share information from various aspects of life. This study investigated the attitude of secondary school students toward using the internet for learning. 300 respondents were selected from six public secondary schools in Ibadan using a multistage sampling procedure. The instrument “Tendency Towards Internet” was adapted and used to elicit information about the attitude of students toward using the internet for learning. Two null hypotheses were tested with the t-test statistical procedure. Findings of the study indicated that there is no significant difference in the attitude of students toward the use of internet in learning on the basis of gender, and that a significant difference exists in the attitude of students towards the use of internet for learning on the basis of subject discipline. It was also established that the attitude of students toward the use of internet is positive. Based on the findings, recommendations were made which include the need for government to provide internet facilities in secondary schools in order to make it accessible to the students.
