Abstract

Abstract: This paper explores the factors influencing student teachers’ use of information and communication technology (ICT) to teach mathematics. Data collection involved questionnaire surveys of student teachers, followed up by individual semi-structured interviews. The student teachers in the study were committed to using ICT in their teaching; they were mostly confident and mostly believed in the value of ICT in mathematics teaching. However, barriers inhibiting the student teachers’ use of ICT include perceived poor access to facilities, limited encouragement from mentors and other teachers in the mathematics department, infrequent use of ICT by existing teachers in teaching, lack of links in the scheme of work, and time constraints. The overriding conclusion is that placement schools have responsibilities for providing adequate technology support, funding and leadership.
