In this advanced age, when the Industrial Revolution came, the demand for revolutionary education also increased. Traditional education is close to extinction, ICT has revolutionized the education field, educational priorities have increased, and only those teachers who have technological pedagogical content knowledge are successful. After receiving traditional education, most students are unemployed, but the demand for teachers who have enhanced their skills through ICT and TPACK has increased. Only those who are familiar with information and communication technology and technological pedagogical content knowledge can successfully get jobs in Pakistan as well as other developed countries and score jobs in the international market. This research aimed to check the perception and attitude of Pakistani prospective teachers towards ICT and TPCAK. For this purpose, 200 prospective teachers doing B.Ed., M.Ed., M.Phil., and Ph.D. education from three teacher education institutions in South Punjab were selected as samples and asked about their perception about ICT and TPACK. Their perception and attitude towards ICT and TPACK were observed through a 5-point Likert scale. Prospective teachers' perception of information and communication was found to be positive. Their perception and attitudes towards technological knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, content knowledge, and technological pedagogical were positive. It is recommended that ICT and TPACK be included in the training of prospective teachers and that competent trainers who are well versed in ICT and TPACK be hired for the training. The school and college level curriculum should also be integrated with ICT so that students can join the new educational revolution and compete positively with the world.
