Research on teaching with ICT has shown that teacher beliefs about ICT affect teaching practice and that it is important to consider the interactions between teachers’ perceptions of ICT and their pedagogy. A study conducted at a university in Singapore examined engineering and non-engineering teachers’ perceptions of ICT (mainly Blackboard) and how their perceptions affect their teaching using technology. It was found that teachers perceived ICT as a container, place and tool, but that these perceptions did not fully correspond to their beliefs about teaching and learning. Also explored in the study were the tensions apparent between teachers’ perceptions and use of ICT in teaching.
