The motive of the study was to examine the Ghanaian institutes of education for technology integration in their teaching and learning. A total sample of 218 tutors were selected across the 46 Ghanaian public colleges of education. The study adopted the use of quantitative data collection and analysis method whereby a questionnaire was issued to the respondents. In order to get real-time data and for respondent confidentiality, Google Forms was used to administer an online questionnaire. Principals gave the researchers official permission, and participants were briefed on informed consent, privacy, and confidentiality. The analysis of six questionnaire items showed that technology integration in the classroom is efficient and convenient for both learners and instructors; using ICT tools makes teaching more interesting and interactive; it is easy to learn to use ICT tools in instructional practices; tutors are willing to recommend ICT integration to their colleagues; but troubleshooting ICT problems is difficult. The paper advises more research on technology integration problems in education.
