Abstract:

In a developing country like India, the mismatch between the techno-centric culture mindedness and the teachers’ pedagogic culture results in the alienation of the teacher from the use of technology. The present paper focuses on examining teachers’ attitude towards ICT; level of their competence in ICT skills; their experiences with ICT; and how best they use ICT in their current educational practice. Maybe due to the overwhelming strength of different types and levels of ICT skills and attitudes possessed by teachers or due to their staunch commitment to various pedagogical inputs in the teaching-learning process, it is likely that the actual integration of ICT in pedagogy might not take place, both strengths-hanging loose by themselves. This study tries to explore how the proficiency in ICT skills and attitude towards technology can help in ICT-pedagogy integration. It reveals a strong positive relationship between the possession of ICT skills by teachers, their attitude towards ICT and actual implementation of ICT in their classroom teaching.
