Abstract


The study was undertaken to determine the extent of integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to Mathematics teaching and learning processes among Junior and Senior High School teachers in the Division of Tanauan City. Further, the research also identified various challenges encountered in ICT-based teaching and learning Mathematics. This study used mixed method of research to obtain the necessary data in the conduct of this research. Specifically, the researchers used survey questionnaire, interview, and focus group discussion with the 77 junior and senior high school Mathematics teachers from the division of Tanauan City. The actual number of respondents was determined using Raosoft sample size determination at five percent margin of error and used stratified random sampling. The Weighted Mean, Frequency Distribution, Percentage, Mean, Standard Deviation, and T-test were the statistical tools used to analyze the data gathered. Based on the findings of the study, majority of the respondents were female, bachelor’s graduate, from teachers I to III, 15 years below in the service and not active in the ICT – related seminars attended. Most of the respondents use technology in writing lesson plans, in computing students’ results and, in teaching the lesson through power point presentations. However, due to the lack of resources and little fund from the MOOE, the respondents rarely use telecommunication devices such as cable, satellite, fax-machine etc. to interact with pupils. There is a significant difference between the extent of the use of ICT in teaching and learning Mathematics and years in teaching. Different challenges like lack of ICT facilities, confidence in the use of ICT and lack of trainings attended were the most commonly identified by the respondents. With the aforementioned, the researchers recommended that Mathematics teachers must be given more opportunities to participate ICT-based seminars and trainings.
