This paper reports on the investigation of pre-service trainee teachers’ perception of the use of the Geometer’s Sketchpad (GSP) for the teaching and learning of geometry. Findings from the survey design suggested that 80% of trainee teachers perceived GSP as a good teaching and learning tool, indicating that GSP has advantageous features that enhance teaching and learning, and GSP can be used as an alternative mode to traditional methods of teaching. Moreover, a large majority of trainee teachers commented positively on the framework for planning GSP tasks, describing it as a ‘helpful’ guide to lesson planning.
