Abstract

For some time, a consistent theme in Teacher Education has been that graduates lack the necessary skill-set to use ICT in their practice. In Australia, the recent implementation of national accreditation processes for Teacher Education, now make this skill-set a requirement, a requirement that is likely to pose challenges for many providers. This small scale study investigated the knowledge and skill levels of pre-service teachers to use a number of ICT applications commonly used in primary and secondary schools. Findings suggest that while their knowledge and skill of general applications is high, this is not the case in relation to those that are more school-context specific.
