    Abstract:
    No one better than a teacher educator knows the importance of effective integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into teaching and learning and its role in enhancing learning, both in school and at home. This study investigates how teacher educators (TE) integrated ICT in their teaching and how they support PT to integrate ICT in their practice lessons during their practice teaching time. The case study method was used for this study. The researcher spent two weeks with nine TE of three different teacher education colleges. The researcher gathered information from TE and PT using a questionnaire about their beliefs and practices regarding ICT integration. The TE were observed teaching and a lesson observation form was used to record observations. The TE believed that it was important to integrate ICT to better communicate content to students but their practices did not show this belief in action. The PT felt themselves poorly prepared to choose appropriate technology in their teaching as they did not view TE using ICT creatively and effectively in their classrooms. The study recommends TE to use creative teaching and assessment strategies that could support PT in exploring different ICT devices and learning their effective use.
