Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the status and utilization of information communication technology in Sebeta College of Teachers Education and its challenges. It stresses how ICT helps in improving the quality of education. It is stating that information and communication technology is an important instrument that can transfer the present isolated, teacher-centered and book-centered learning environment into a student~centered environment. Mixed method approach was employed in the study. Questionnaires, interviews, and a personal observation were used in order to get pertinent data. The research identified that the current status of1CT in Sebeta College of T eachers Education is at its infant stage. No ICT policy at work is jbund in the College. As the findings showed, unavailability of some IC T tools, inconsistent technology usage (computer virus, poor internet connection) and fluctuating of electricity made ICT more unproductive in improving the quality of education. Moreover, the result of the study indicated that there are several factors that hinder the implementation of1CT at the College. These include infrastructure problem, lack of motivations, lack of [CT skill and of training facilities, lack of administrative management and technical support and resistance of individuals to change. Based on theindings of the study, conclusions were drawn and recommendations were fizrwarded.
