The use of ICT in teaching-learning process is a relatively new phenomenon and it has been the educational researchers' focus. The effective integration of this technology into classroom practices poses a challenge to teachers and administrators. The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of information and communication technology skills development program on computer achievement of prospective teachers. The sample of the study comprised of 102 prospective teachers selected randomly from the Private B.Ed colleges of Punjab affiliated to Punjabi university, Patiala. The 60 items computer achievement test was constructed and validated. The present study had experimental design, included an experimental group (n=51) and a control group (n=51), and used pre test and post test measures. Statistical differences have been found in favour of the experimental group. The finding of the study revealed that there was significant difference in the computer achievement of students taught with different instructional treatment. These results strongly support the effectiveness of ICT skills development program in improving computer achievement of prospective teachers.

Abstract


The use of ICT in teaching-learning process is a relatively new phenomenon and it has been the educational researchers' focus. The effective integration of this technology into classroom practices poses a challenge to teachers and administrators. The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of information and communication technology skills development program on computer achievement of prospective teachers. The sample of the study comprised of 102 prospective teachers selected randomly from the Private B.Ed colleges of Punjab affiliated to Punjabi university, Patiala. The 60 items computer achievement test was constructed and validated. The present study had experimental design, included an experimental group (n=51) and a control group (n=51), and used pre test and post test measures. Statistical differences have been found in favour of the experimental group. The finding of the study revealed that there was significant difference in the computer achievement of students taught with different instructional treatment. These results strongly support the effectiveness of ICT skills development program in improving computer achievement of prospective teachers.
