Abstract

This paper presents the findings of a survey that examined factors influencing teachers’ ICT literacy. The survey was part of a larger study exploring teachers’ readiness to transform their traditional role and engage primary school students in 21st century learning experiences. The survey was conducted with teachers from a simple random sample of 350 Victorian government primary schools in Australia. A recently developed framework of ICT literacy for primary school teachers was utilized to examine factors that influence the development of teachers’ skills and knowledge in integrating new technologies into student learning. In this paper the authors report on teachers’ perceptions about factors influencing the development of their ICT literacy and interpret the impact of independent variables such as age, gender, teaching experience, and teachers’ use of computers in the contemporary primary school. Drawing on the findings of the study they identify important leads for future professional development.
