Almon B. Bokilis


The study aimed to determine the level of technology literacy skills of pre-service teachers necessary for blended learning. The study employed the descriptive comparative design. Respondents of the project included 467 pre-service teachers from four public and private universities in Baguio and Benguet, Philippines. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to treat the data gathered. Findings revealed that pre-service teachers are moderately capable in their technology literacy skills necessary for blended learning. There is no difference in the technology literacy skills regardless of the pre-service teachers’ degree program. However, those from private teacher education institutions (TEIs) manifested higher technology literacy skills than their public TEI counterpart.
