Regarding the role of ICT on education systems' transition from traditional education to modern one, schools generally have started to use ICT in their programs. This study aimed to investigate teachers' attitudes towards the use of ICT, especially, computer as a main manifestation of ICT- in Tabriz, Iran governmental high schools. 367 teachers were selected randomly as research sample by using Kokeran's formula for sampling. A researcher-made questionnaire in Likert scale was prepared and presented to the subjects. Findings showed that the studied teachers' views on computer and ICT (in 5 subscales including computer eagerness/enjoyment, computer anxiety, computer avoidance, using e-mail in class and computer productivity) were totally in good range with the mean of 4.2 (p<0.05). Despite some deficiencies in computer and ICT facilities, the teachers are aware of importance and necessity of using computer and ICT in students' achievement and teachers' successful teaching. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
