Abstract—Every year countless hours are spent on professional development (PD) for teacher growth. This is especially true when it comes to teacher PD specific to integrating information and communication technologies (ICT) in instruction. Teachers have reported that time invested in PD is not often useful or beneficial to instruction. What mode of delivery in PD have teachers found to be most useful when using ICTs in instruction? This comparative research analysis highlights teachers’ opinions, beliefs, and perspectives about PD strategies teachers consider to be instructionally beneficial in PD specific to integrating ICTs in instruction. These strategies include peer collaboration, digital pedagogical focus, and meeting teacher needs. Identifying three common beneficial strategies to PD in ICT integration may lead to more useful PD for teachers and help improve the integration on technology in instruction.
