Abstract

Nowadays it is very important for language teachers to have knowledge of computer technologies and a positive attitude towards them. The purpose of the present research is to investigate in-service EFL teachers’ level of knowledge and use of ICT, their attitudes towards integrating ICTs into instruction, and the relationship between teachers’ attitudes and independent variables such as gender, years of experience in teaching and previous participation in ICT courses. The data was collected from 56 participants through “the use of computers in instruction scale”, “ICT competency scale”, and an interview. Descriptive statistics, inferantial statistics, and content analysis were used to analyze quantitative and qualitative data. The results obtained from the instruments revealed that EFL teachers have high levels of knowledge about and usage of ICT, possess positive attitudes towards the integration of computer technology with instruction, and lack of significant difference between the independent variables in terms of attitudes towards ICT use.
