Abstract

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been increasingly made available in education settings and more and more educators recognize the use of ICT as an enhancer for teaching and learning. However, due to a variety of reasons, ICT are not equally distributed and digital divide still exists in schools, so teacher candidates are expected to be aware of the current situation regarding the availability and utilization of ICT and have knowledge and skills to address the imbalanced problems. This paper reports the measures that the authors take to help teacher candidates in a Canadian university teacher education program learn how to use alternative software programs as a way to address equity issues as part of their ICT literacy education.
