The purpose of this study was to assess the attitude of students towards the ICT-enabled classroom. In a study of 113 high school students, an attitude scale was constructed and administered. The findings indicate a significant difference in the attitudes of Grade 9 students, who were found to be more in favour of and happier with ICT-based than normal classrooms on all of the tested items. No change was detected in these attitudes in relation to the type of school in which the participants studied.
