MetadataShow full item record
This paper was based on a study carried out among 50 Post Graduate student teachers pursuing a Masters or Post Graduate diploma course in Education. The findings showed that 76% of the participants rated their ICT skills as either low or moderate. While the majority rated themselves highly on word processing, the majority had little or no knowledge on the use of ICT to analyse research data. It is recommended that universities should include a compulsory course unit on research data analysis using ICT. It is further recommended that serving teachers should be given in-service training courses to enable them improve their ICT skills in order to meet the demands of the 21st century.
