Abstract

Information and communication technology (ICT) is increasingly widespread, influencing educational systems worldwide. ICT educational tools can be a transformative tool that may facilitate meaningful learning in physics courses if educators are willing to embrace it with a positive attitude. The attitude of physics teachers has a tremendous effect on ICT integration in physics classrooms. This research paper is aimed to examine the attitudes towards the use of ICTs among Lebanese secondary physics teachers. A sample of 141 secondary physics teachers was assessed for their ICTs’ attitude using a Likert type questionnaire. The questionnaire focused on the teachers’ affect towards ICT, aware of usefulness and their confidence to use ICT. The results of both descriptive and inferential statistics showed a positive attitude towards ICT andno gender, years of experience or age differences among physics teachers’ attitudes. Implications for teacher training and suggestions for further research are provided.
