Abstract

Teachers realize the importance of technology to promote enhancement in the transferring content knowledge. The problem exists around the effectiveness from integrating technology in educational context. Thus, understanding teachers’ perception about their ability to sufficiently integrate new technology such as digital white board is significant for their teaching effectiveness. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine teachers’ perception about their ability to effectively integrate digital white board technology in elementary classroom in public school under the technological pedagogical content knowledge framework (TPACK). The participants of this study were 71 teachers from public schools in Colorado. The study’s results indicated that there are no relationships between teachers’ demographics (i.e., gender, age, and teaching experience) with teachers’ TPACK perceptions.
