The purpose of this study is two-fold. First, this study investigated teachers’ perception on smart education. Second, this study conducted importance-performance analysis (IPA) to identify areas need to be concentrated for improvement. Teachers’ perception on smart education was categorized as self-directed, motivated, adaptive, resource-enriched, and technology embedded. Each category was substantiated with literature and then a survey for IPA was developed and implemented. As a result, facilitating authentic learning experiences, providing rich interaction between teacher and learners, presenting clear leaning objectives, using materials according with what is learned, and applying SNS (Social Network Service) tools were perceived as the most important features in each category. According to IPA, providing learners for active participation in knowledge construction, facilitating authentic learning experiences, and designing learning activities for critical and creative thinking skills were identified as top priorities for improvement and support
