The purposes of this study are: (a) to find out the extent to which teachertrainees could be prepared for ICT integration into the Colleges of Education
syllabuses in Ghana; (b) to find out some of the barriers that are militating against
the integration of technology into the teaching and learning process.
A cross-sectional survey design was employed to collect data in three
regions of the country. Data were collected from 120 student-teachers in three
Colleges of Education using random sampling. The survey also included 150
tutors from the Colleges of Education who were randomly sampled during a
marking section. Data were gathered through questionnaire from all participants.
The quantitative data were analysed using frequency table. Percentages were used
to answer research questions 1, 2, 4 and 5; while research question three (3) was
analysed using qualitative analysis.
The results indicated that, in general, Colleges of Education in Ghana
have not effectively integrated technology into the college curricula. In addition,
to a large extent, tutors and student-teachers did not perceive themselves as
having enough training to teach with computers. In response to the urgent need to
integrate technology into Ghana’s Colleges of Education curricula, it was
recommended that, there should be an establishment of technology centres in the
Colleges which will serve as training centres for tutors as well as centres for the
acquisition of technology tool for teaching and learning purposes.
