Only a digitally competent teacher can effectively use ICT in the educational process. Teachers must be educated and adequate ICT learning contents are required. The study contents should fulfil the objectives of knowledge upgrade and motivation for use of ICT in educational processes. The aim of this study was to get better insight into the pre-service teacher’s assessment of topics’ popularity, estimations of achieved skills and motivation for implementation of ICT in education. Our research sample consists of two generations of students of elementary education that attended the ICT in Education course. The two-year time gap is considered suitable to discover differences between generations because of the rapid development of ICT. The data were statistically analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results show the increased acceptance of ICT in education, but the trends for the forthcoming generations are left to future researches.
