Abstract: This study reported in this paper sought to ascertain the teacher pedagogical preparedness for the integration of ICT in classroom practices in public primary schools in Bungoma County, Kenya. The study was based on the Rogers Theory of diffusion of innovations and involved primary school teachers, head teachers and Sub-County Quality, Assessment and Standards Officers (SCQASOs) in Bungoma County. Descriptive survey design was adopted and involved use of simple random sampling techniques to select a sample of 40 head teachers, 300 teachers and 3 SCQASOs. Data was collected using questionnaires, interviews and observation schedules which were validated, and their reliability established using the Pearsons Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. Data collected was analyzed using descriptive statistics involving computation of frequencies and percentages. The study recommended that teachers are expected to sharpen their technological skills and knowledge as professionals to appropriately integrate ICTs in instruction.
