The main goal of this study is to investigate teacher candidates’ attitudes towards use of computers. For this purpose, 170 pre-service teachers were asked to complete an attitude survey that consisted of 23 items. The results showed that there is no gender difference among pre-service teachers’ attitudes towards computer use. However, significant differences for computer uses were found by the subject areas that the teacher candidates have been trained. In addition, teachers’ attitudes toward computers are correlated with preservice teachers’ years of experience with computers and their confidence level.
