  Abstract


The study sought to examine the teacher-trainees’ perceptions on the effectiveness of ICTs use in teaching and learning, with the focus on the students’: common use of ICTs, level of ICT skills, impact of ICTs usage in learning and perceived factors associated with ICTs integration in learning. A descriptive quantitative research design was used to further the study process. The population examined comprised the selected Colleges of Education teacher-trainees in Ghana. Purposive sampling technique was used to involve 74 participants in the study. Descriptive data analysis was carried out using Jamovi Statistical Data Analysis (JSDA) tool and the Microsoft Excel Application package. The Cronbach’s Alpha (α) reliability analysis obtained on items include: 0.83, 0.81, 0.85, and 0.72 respectively. Most of the students, of about 86.3% each, use ICT tools regularly for research on assignments and presentations of classwork respectively, while about 71.2% used it regularly for SNS. The findings revealed moderate or low frequency rates of about 43.8%, 19.2%, 30.1%, and 38.4% of the respondents that can use: word processing packages, excel, PowerPoint and Encyclopedia very well. The overall mean of 3.7 admitted ICTs use in learning: motivates them to explore more content areas, encourages them to collaborate with others easily, improves their IT/information management skills in general, will improve their career or employment prospects in the long term, makes them feel connected to what is going on in the Colleges, makes them get more actively involved in class activities, and it makes them feel connected to their environment, other students and the tutors. About 95.9% and 89.0% of the students were of the view that there should be strong internet connectivity in the Colleges to support ICTs in teaching and learning. About 65.8% of students also resolute there are limited or no ICTs facilities in their College libraries. In addition, 56.2% of the respondents were of the view that ICT courses be made mandatory core courses for all students for the 4-years of study. The study recommends the establishment/refurbish of ICT facilities in the Colleges, the organisation of periodic ICT training courses for tutors and the reconsideration of ICT core courses for students throughout the 4-year B.Ed. programme of study.
