The appropriateness of professional learning community of practice was at the level of “most” ( = 3.86, S.D. = 0.31)
2) 94 teachers joined the community of practice and 42 teachers used ICT via video clip to share knowledge and good teaching experience.
There were 47.61% of occupation and technology learning group, 28.57% of science learning group, 7.14% of mathematics and foreign language learning group, and 4.76% of social science and Thai language learning group.
