Abstract

Abstract: Lot of concern has been focused towards teacher students ICT-skills. At the same time it has been merely forgotten that also teacher trainers themselves need to update their technological know-how. This study was initiated to investigate university-level teacher trainers (a) perceived skills, (b) interest, and (c) attitudes for using information and communication technologies. Survey was presented for teaching staff, including professors and lecturers, at the University of Oulu, Finland (N=130). Findings evidence that computing skills among teacher trainers varies a lot according to age and gender. Results do offer implications regarding use of technology in education, staff training, and activities of educators in general.
