Scientific knowledge is very important as it is a shield against poisonous hands of global competitive economy. There is no doubt about it; societies operating at lower digital divide are at the verge of contracting neo-modern enslavement. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is dissolving both national and international geographical boundaries, revolutionizing the way information is sent, received, organized, analyzed and interpreted. This article highlights on the importance of considering the learners’ cultural environment when designing ICT teaching and learning resources to suit our indigenous setting. However, the success of Information and Communication Technology revolution will not be complete until developing countries generate their content and build their own tools. This paper highlights on the importance of harnessing ICT resources to suit learners’ cultural environment (Indigenized Concept Cartoons in Science Education) for intellectual restitution.

Key words: Indigenizing, Science Education Content, Concept Cartoons, ICT and Nigeria
