Journal on School Educational Technology, v2 n3 p56-67 Dec 2006-Feb 2007
Tremendous changes are taking place in the world which certainly influence the system of education, and teacher education too cannot remain immune to these global changes. Information Technology (IT] is affecting teachers, individuals and society. Digital learning has opened the doors of classrooms and made knowledge accessible even for those sitting at home. The preparation of teachers has also changed with the passage of time and with the change in expectations of society. Teachers have always played a crucial role in preparing communities and societies towards exploring new horizons and achieving higher levels of progress and development. The teacher educators occupy a pivotal position in the system of education. The success of any educational reform depends upon the quality of teachers and in turn the quality of teachers depends to a large extent on the quality of teacher education. In view of the above fact, the computer education paper was introduced as a compulsory paper in the common core curriculum for B.Ed course, for all the secondary teacher-training institutions in the state. The present researcher conducted a survey with a designed questionnaire to assess the computer usage, computer literacy, and the attitude of B.Ed trainees towards teaching computer education. A sample of 200 B.Ed. students from government and private colleges of education both male and female from the Kakatlya University region, were included to make a through analysis using statistical evidence. The study reveals many facts regarding the availability of computers in educational institutions and the percentage of student and teacher users.
