The digital divide is a well documented problem, and usually gender is reported as one of the main factor when we consider the teacher population. The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of gender towards ICTs attitudes in the city of Murcia (Spain). A questionnaire of attitudes with 31 items, rated on five point Likert scale, was conducted among 8 vocational schools. The attitudes were evaluated considering the General Attitude, the Attitude towards the integrating the ICT in the classroom and the Attitude towards the consideration of the ICT as a teaching and learning facilitator tool. The results show that gender is not an exclusion factor in the evaluated area, finding no differences between male o female teachers in vocational schools.
