The purpose of this study is to understand the role of motivation in the use of ICTs by student teachers during their field practice. In all, 6998 student teachers participated in one of the largest studies in North America centered on various aspects of the use of ICTs in teacher education programs. Statistical analyses were conducted to assess the impact of motivation on the use of ICTs. They reveal that motivation is positively related to the use of ICTs during internship. Outcomes also highlight gender impacts on motivation and technological abilities. These results, issued from a large-scale study, could have important implications for teacher trainers, school principals, and policy makers.
