Abstract

This article discusses the ICT literacy of secondary education teachers in Greece. Regardless of their specialty, a representable sample of 700 in-service teachers from 283 secondary education schools throughout Greece, participated in our questionnaire survey that was conducted from December 2017 until June 2018. The teachers were questioned about their familiarity with personal computer and smartphone use, whether they use ICT devices in the classroom, while also reporting any obstacles they face in order to implement ICT in the educational process. The data collected enabled us to review the teachers’ ICT literacy. The ICT literacy definition we endorse is the one offered by ETS (Educational Testing Service) (2007); “ICT literacy is using digital technology, communications tools, and/or networks to access, manage, integrate, evaluate, and create information in order to function in a knowledge society”. The findings of the research showed that the majority of Greek teachers are skilled ICT users, embracing their implementation in their teaching interventions, although ICT related Greek policies are contradictory.
