An examination of Saudi high school teachers' ICT knowledge and implementation

Al Harbi, Hanaa Eid M . (2014) An examination of Saudi high school teachers' ICT knowledge and implementation. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This study investigated Saudi high school teachers' implementation of ICT in schools. The study also explored the relationship between the teachers' level of TPACK and their implementation of ICT. In the first phase of the study, more than 250 Saudi teachers from Al-Madinah administrative area filled in a four-part self reported questionnaire while in the second, 12 teachers completed semi-structured interviews. Findings from both phases of the study revealed that Saudi high school teachers demonstrated low level of effectiveness of ICT implementation. Among a number of barriers, Teachers' TPACK knowledge was found as the best predictor of the effectiveness of ICT implementation.
