Most of the day students in Tanzanian schools consume their time by traveling from home to school and back home from school every day a week in the morning and evening. This situation results in a loss of students learning enthusiasm and students’ dropout. These factors contribute to the high number of candidates who score divisions three, four, and zero in national examinations results. According to the national education system, those students who got division four and zero lose the illegibility of joining formal higher education. Yearly, this situation contributes to the presence of a high number of unemployed people on the streets. The presence of a high number of unemployed people on the streets leads to the existence of street hooligans and petty thieves in street villages. This study investigated the problem by collecting data from teachers and students using structured interviews and questionnaires to examine the factors of poor academic performance of students to implement a digital solution of enhancing learning enthusiasm and maximizing the learing time of students of day schools. The study concluded by recommending schools to integrate ICT technologies in teaching and learning practices to improve teaching methods of teachers, to facilitate the easy access of academic materials in multimedia format file format. However, despite the high effort made by the Ministry of Education Science and Technology (MoEST) of ICT integration in education, the study contributed scientific knowledge to the educational policymakers to use ICT experts available in Tanzania to implement computer-based academic systems of converting textbooks into audiobooks using Python Objected Oriented Programming language to improve the learning enthusiasm of students and maximize learning time of students of day schools who consume most of their time on traveling from home to school and back home from school to home at the morning and evening.
