Abstract


It is essential for pre-service teachers to have digital literacy and technology use skills in order to integrate technology into education and training processes both effectively and efficiently. In this study, the digital literacy and technology use skills of pre-service teachers from different universities in Kazakhstan were examined comparatively in terms of some variables. The study was conducted with the participation of 209 pre-service teachers according to the survey and relational survey model. 'Digital Literacy' and 'Technology Use Skills' scales were used to collect the research data. According to the findings of the study, in general, pre-service teachers' technology use skills and digital literacy were found to be at a high level. The digital literacy and technology use levels of the participant pre-service teachers differed according to gender and grade level. The technology use skills of male participants were found to be higher than their female peers. It was also discovered that pre-service teachers studying in upper grades had high digital literacy and technology use skills. Finally, pre-service teachers' digital literacy significantly predicts their technology use skills.
