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.
