Abstract

Technology is a growing part of any society today. Educational technology has become a cornerstone for any country's efforts to improve students' performance at K-12 schools. It has become the focus of educators worldwide. However, research studies investigating technology integration, particularly at the United Arab Emirates (UAE) K-12 schools, focus on quantitative data collection methodology. This study investigated technology integration at UAE Model schools using a mixed method of data collection consisting of focus group interviews and a questionnaire. Study sample consisted of 40 female and 60 male teachers from two schools in Al-Ain Educational Zone, Abu Dhabi. Study results showed that teachers at both schools are integrating technology in their classes' activities. They use a variety of technologies to promote students' learning. However, methods of integration by male teachers differed in some cases compared to their female colleagues. Implications for technology integration in the UAE context are discussed.
