Interactive Computer Technologies (ICT) have crept into education industry, thus dramatically causing a tremor of transformation as it is continually integrated into the instructional process. This study examined relative and combined contributions of computer anxiety, self-concept and gender to teachers’ attitude toward the use of Interactive Computer Technologies. 454 secondary school teachers from Ogun-East senatorial district of Ogun-State, Nigeria constituted the sample for the study. Three instruments were used to collect data for the study, while Pearson Product Moment Correlation, Multiple Regression and Analysis of Variance statistical tools were used to investigate the predictive capacity of the independent variables on the dependent. The findings revealed that the combination of the three independent variables significantly predicted the independent variables. Meanwhile, only computer anxiety and self-concept contributed to the prediction of the dependent variable with gender making no significant contribution. In view of the findings, recommendations were made.
