Abstract:

The study determines the strategies for the integration of instructional technology into teacher education curriculum. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the conduct of the study. A sample of 250 lecturers were drawn from Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo. The data collected from the respondents through a questionnaire were analysed with mean rank order and t-test statistics. The result of the study shows that lecturers exhibit positive attitude towards the integration of instructional technology into teacher education curriculum. The study recommended that the curriculum planners should include the use of instructional technology in every level of teacher education in the country. The Federal Government should do every thing possible to link higher institutions in the country to the global telecommunication network (internet) to enable both teachers and students benefit from services provided by instructional media such as radio, television, internet, CD rum among others.
