Termit Kaur Ranjit Singh and Shanmuga Velu Subramaniam

In the last two decades of education reform, teachers have been viewed as central to both the problems of education and their solutions. Education researchers and school leaders have faced the challenge of motivating teachers to high levels of performance. The purpose of this study is to examine the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) literacy among the pre-service teachers in a teacher training institution in Malaysia.. This study investigates the knowledge level of ICT, usage habits and the attitude towards using ICT among the pre service teachers. A survey was used for data collection and it was found that participants show different habits of ICT usage while they are studying in the institution. The research found that pre-service teachers have different attitudes towards ICT, based on gender and age. Recommendations are made and implications and suggestions for further research are provided in this paper.
