ICT COMPETENCY AND TECHNOLOGY UTILIZATION OF PHILIPPINE SCIENCE HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS

J. Bingcang

Philippine Science High School (PHILIPPINES)
The use of information and communication technology (ICT) is becoming an essential part of education. The integration of ICT in both the teaching and learning processes is one of the most practical solutions towards educational reform. Teachers play a vital role in the said processes as he or she implements learning activities within the classroom.
This Study seeks to measure the profile of teachers within the Philippine Science High School system, a specialized high school system focusing on science and mathematics. It looks into two major classifications of teachers—subject taught and campus location.
The Study then explores the significant differences between teachers within the mentioned major classifications of teachers in terms of ICT Competency and technology utilization, as measured by the National ICT Competency for Teachers and ISTE Technology Competence Survey, respectively. Inferential statistics using T-test was used to see the relationship of subjects taught and campus location to the teacher’s ICT competency and technology utilization. The Study reveals that: (1) there is a difference between Humanities and Science teachers in terms of ICT Competency and technology utilization, and (2) there is no significant difference between rural and urban campuses in terms of both ICT Competency and technology utilization. Finally, the study shows that there is a positive correlation between ICT competency and technology utilization of PSHS teachers.
Based on the foregoing, the researcher proposed recommendations for teachers, school administrators, curriculum writers, and policy makers.
