The data of the study were analysed inferentially and descriptively using standard deviation, mean, frequency, percentage. Findings showed that majority of the student teachers highly had positive attitude toward the use of ICT may implement ICT. In addition, the findings of study indicated that there is a relationship between perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, and attitude toward the use of ICT and utilization of ICT for learning by student teachers.
