Abstract: This study was concerned with the challenges facing secondary schools teachers and students in the use of instructional technologies. The rationale was based on the view that properly designed, learning materials inspired by instructional technology and delivered by technology add value to a teaching environment on which contact hours are limited. This is because the curriculum needs academic standards and the development of digital age skills for the 21st century learners. The literature review focuses on the meaning of instructional technology, the use of instructional technologies in teaching and learning in institutions in other parts of the world as well as Jinja in Uganda however, the challenges faced in the use of instructional technologies in secondary schools have not been addressed. This was a descriptive survey design. The study was conducted in two ((2) secondary schools in Kagoma County. Data was collected using questionnaires, interview schedules and observation schedules. The obtained data were analyzed systematically using descriptive statistics and presented with the help of frequency tables, graphs and percentages. The study findings revealed that most of the instructional technologies were available but inadequate in terms of quantity.
