Abstract: Abstract: The aim of this study is to examine the attitudes of tribal preservice teachers towards use of computer. For the purpose, a sample of 47 preservice teachers was selected randomly from a Tribal College of Teacher Education and Computer Attitude Scale was administered using a Likert type method with four factors: affective, perceived usefulness, perceived control, and behavioural intention to use the computer. The results of this study showed that tribal preservice teachers had a positive attitude towards use of computer and no gender and sub-community differences were found among tribal pre-service teachers in their computer attitudes.
