This study examines the attitudes held by the first year College students of the Lesotho College of Education, toward technology. It investigates the relationship between students' attitudes toward technology and some other factors such as teacher characteristics, students’ learning and classroom environment. It also explores whether student gender affects attitudes toward technology. A sample of 200 first year students from all the three programmes (Diploma in Secondary education, Diploma in Primary education and Diploma in technology Education) was randomly selected. Attitudes were measured by a questionnaire survey using the five point Likert type scale and interview. The findings suggest that attitude toward technology were predicted by the three study variables. However, no statistically significant gender differences were established
