Mzomba Nelson Dludlu and Nomsa Mndzebele

Abstract—The purpose of the study was to describe gender and performance expectancy of agriculture teachers towards ICT integration in teaching secondary school agriculture in Swaziland. The study was a descriptive correlational study employing quantitative approach in data collection. A census of 314 agriculture teachers was a target population for the study and 284 responded to the questionnaires that were used to collect data. Descriptive statistics and correlations were used to analyse data. Findings revealed a negligible to low positive association between gender and performance expectancy of agriculture teachers towards ICT integration in teaching secondary school agriculture. There was no significant difference between male and female agriculture teachers in their performance expectancy towards ICT integration in teaching. The ICT integration competency possessed by agriculture teachers has contributed to positive perception and usefulness in job performance. It was recommended that teacher education institutions should be informed to include ICT integration in teaching as a major component of instructional delivery strategy so that both male and female teachers are competent when they graduate.

Index Terms—Gender, ICT integration and performance expectancy.
