Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary findings of pre-service Teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) teachers’ attitude towards using ICT for language teaching. Technology is ambiguous and the demand for utilizing it to support the needs of a 21st century learner is ever growing. Therefore, we aim to explore how millennials as future teachers perceive their role in catering to this requirement especially in language learning. The study was conducted in a university in Malaysia using descriptive quantitative design on 50 pre-service TESOL teachers. It was found that overall attitude is positive and device ownership has no effect on their overall attitude on using ICT for teaching. They perceived ICT as beneficial in developing interesting tools for teaching and a motivating factor. However, they negatively perceived their competency in developing and integrating such tools for teaching in the future.
