Abstract: Faculty members at an English Language Centre in the Central-North of Saudi Arabia were surveyed on their skills and attitudes using mobile technologies in teaching English as a Foreign Language. Results indicated that Faculty members had a good level of skill and positive attitudes towards the use of mobile devices in EFL teaching. A number of statistically significant effects were identified for the independent variables age and teaching experience. Moderate positive correlations were found between Faculty members' level of skill using mobile devices and both Faculty attitudes towards using mobile technology in English language teaching and intention to adopt mobile technology in English language teaching. Future use of ICT was predicted by attitudes towards the use of ICT. This relationship was moderated by a covariate: self-reported skills in ICT usage.
