Abstract

This study examines how teachers manage new technologies in the process of teaching their students. The advent of Information Communication Technology (ICT) has doubtlessly impacted on almost every discipline, and teaching inclusive. Both hardware and software have been made available to aid teaching and learning including e-learning, e-assessment, etc. Despite the great potentials that the technologies have, not only to revolutionise the educational process, but also to engender the suitability of graduates to take on real life challenges in the ever evolving global working environment. After considering the issue of ICT availability, however, there remains the pivotal role of teachers. This study, therefore, examines the interest, willingness to learn new things, and competence of teachers in the use of new technologies. Considering that they mediate what eventually gets to the students, it becomes germane to assess their exposure. To realize the objectives of the study the method of data analysis will utilise the logit regression framework.
