Abstract:


The use of information and communication technology (ICT) in the school system is becoming increasingly prominent. This study was conducted to find out the information and communication technology literacy levels among student-teachers in the universities in North-Central Nigeria. The study involved a total of 638 student-teachers out of which 360 were males 248 were females. The instrument used for the study was a researcher-designed questionnaire with a reliability index of 0.74. The results indicated that student-teachers in North-central Nigeria have an average ICT literacy level. No significant difference was established in the level of ICT literacy between male and female student-teachers {t(636)=1.672>0.05} and there was no significant difference in the level of ICT literacy by student-teachers in the Arts, Sciences, and Social Sciences {F(2,635)=0.935>0.05}. It was recommended that effort should be made by the universities to make the student-teachers imbibe the culture of integrating ICT into pedagogy and educational administration since they have an average ICT literacy level and that more ICT equipment should be made available to the students by the various universities.
