Abstract

Teachers’ perceptions of integrating educational technologies such as GeoGebra in teaching varied according to gender and these disparities were explored. The pre- and post-technological pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) Likert questionnaires were used as data collection instruments. TPACK was also used as the framework underpinning the study. The researchers purposively sampled 22 mathematics secondary teachers from twelve randomly selected schools in one district. Of the 22 selected teachers, 13 were male and nine were female. The researchers adopted a quasi-experimental research design within a quantitative approach and used the descriptive and inferential statistics to analyze and interpret the results. The findings revealed that males ranked their familiarity and experience with several novel technologies higher than did females. There exist gender differences with more male than female teachers showing a greater benefit to most of TPACK components.
