J. Samuel Gnanamuthu, R. Krishnakumar
Anxiety is recognized as a powerful influence on everyday life of the people and is reflected in much of what they do. Research has established firmly that stress and Anxiety reduce performance effectiveness. If we believe that teachers are the key persons for successful implementation of internet- use in high school and other classrooms, then teachers’ internet-related anxieties must be taken into consideration. Considering this the paper focuses on the Anxiety of B.Ed. Teacher trainees’ towards ICT. The study was conducted in 12 colleges of education with 600 teacher trainees. In order to measure the attitude the researcher himself developed the tool. The major findings of the study are that the female B.Ed. trainees are having more Anxiety towards ICT. The female trainees may be exposed more towards ICT. The gender and educational qualification are the contributing factors in the case of Anxiety. Effects shall be taken to encourage and motivate the teacher trainees to create their own email id and to communicate through that. B.Ed. Trainees’ Anxiety does not change with respect to the nature of institution. It may be due to the reason that the institution may not differ much in providing better ICT environment.
