The gender gap is a critical challenge that threatens to leave millions of women and girls behind in an increasingly globally connected world. This study sets out to investigate Internet Use Patterns among Student Teachers in a Nigeria College of Education with a view to determine the type of use made of the Internet by the student teachers and investigate the effect of gender on the use of the Internet by the student teachers. The questionnaire known as Internet Use questionnaire was administered to final year students of Federal College of Education, Abeokuta. The results indicate that getting information for school work, communication, chatting and social networking are the major use to which the participants put the internet. It also indicates that gender affects both use and feeling of pre-service teachers about the internet. This implies that gender is a major factor to be considered in use of as well as feeling about the internet.
