This study aims to identify both level and frequency of ICT technology use and factors affecting perceived self-efficacy levels of pre-service English Language Teaching (ELT) teachers' (n = 241) ICT self-efficacy. The data were collected through a survey (Çuhadar & Yücel, 2010) during the 2011-2012 academic year that includes items on the use and frequency of ICT technologies along with three open-ended questions. The responses were analyzed in frequency and percentages using descriptive statistics within the framework of Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) based on Social Cognitive Theory and the content analysis technique. It could be concluded that majority of the pre-service ELT teachers find themselves self-efficacious in the use of ICT. Results further suggest that the perceived use of computers, experience and confidence play significant role while lack of knowledge and skills, technical problems and lack of confidence negatively influence ICT self-efficacy.
