The current case study examined pre-service teachers’ expectations of and attitudes toward the learning and integrating of ICT into their teaching.
This study also examined the participants' perceptions of the availability and use of ICT in the Teacher Education Program (TEP) and their placement schools.
For two years in a row the researchers collected data through online survey and focus group meetings.
The findings confirm that there is not enough comfort with ICT use among future teachers, despite skill level.
It also was revealed that future teachers have high expectations re learning and teaching with ICT; however, there is not enough modeling of ICT pedagogy, both in schools and in the TEP.
Access to ICT is limited, both in schools and in the TEP.
