Abstract

This comparative study between public and private universities in Ecuador examines how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are integrated into and perceived in Ecuadorian higher education teaching. Using an adapted questionnaire and a Likert scale, data from university professors are analyzed, focusing on their attitude towards ICT and its impact on education. The results reveal mixed emotions from professors towards ICT, highlighting both positive aspects and challenges. A positive relationship is observed between the effective use of ICT and its acceptance, as well as a significant impact on educational effectiveness and student attitude. It concludes by emphasizing the need for a balanced and adaptive approach in the integration of ICT, underscoring the importance of developing digital and pedagogical skills and the implementation of effective educational policies and practices.
