It is known that teaching entails systematic presentation of facts, ideas, skills, and techniques to students; therefore, the introduction of technology into adult learning means more than just making it works. This research work therefore seeks to find out the pedagogical implication of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) on Adult Education in Osun State College of Education, Nigeria. One hundred (100) lecturers and one hundred (100) students of Osun State College of Education were used for the study. The instruments used for this study are questionnaires, drawn up based on the research questions. Results revealed that most of ICT facilities for teaching and learning are not available and that the attitude of lecturers and students towards the use of ICT in teaching and learning is good and positive. In addition, lecturers are also aware of the importance of using ICT in teaching and learning. Results also showed that the funding and supply of ICT facilities to departments are insufficient. From the results, the study recommended among others, that government should endeavour to supply necessary funds for the acquisition of relevant ICT equipments. In-service computer training should be given to all the staff including the management. Finally, the department should give individual students access to the use of 1C1 equipment.
