Abstract


Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have been extensively used for pedagogical purposes across the globe. The current scholarship argues that teachers’ ICT skills contribute in developing their perception about pedagogical use of ICTs. In developing countries like Pakistan, initiatives have been taken to integrate ICTs in education. However, there has been paucity of research in order to know the existing level of ICT Skills and its relationship with perception of college teachers about pedagogical use of ICT. Keeping in this view, following research study was conducted to examine this relationship among college teachers in Lahore. By using cross sectional survey research method, 228 teachers were surveyed from colleges situated in Lahore. Findings are aligned with current discourse that ICT skills of teachers play an important role in developing their perception about pedagogical use of ICTs.
