Abstract

. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is the current issue in this digital era, particularly regarding English language teaching. Then, attitude as the force of teachers’ behavior to use ICT in teaching becomes a crucial case. However, a similar study is quite scarce in Indonesian ELT context. This survey study aimed to describe the English teachers' attitude towards ICT use and the frequency of using ICT in their teaching practices. This study also aimed at finding out the correlation between two variables. The participants of this study were 322 English teachers of Junior high schools in Yogyakarta provinces, Indonesia. The questionnaires paper-based were distributed as the instrument for data collection. The research data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics through SPSS program version 24. The results revealed that the teachers had a positive attitude towards the use of ICT by an overall mean score of 3.32. In addition, the total mean score of the frequency of ICT use was 2.44, which means the teachers rarely used ICT in English teaching. Besides, the correlation results showed that there is a significant positive relation between English teachers’ attitude and frequency of ICT use by Pearson Correlation value 0.386.Although the teachers’ attitude relates to their ICT use is positive, there may be other factors influencing teachers’ frequency of ICT use instead of attitude.
