Abstract: The purpose of the paper is to investigate the development of teachers’ perceptions towards engaging students in self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) activities, and with the support of information and communication technology (ICT) in classrooms. More than 4000 teachers’ perceptions towards engaging students in SDL and CoL activities were collected through an online survey from 2010 to 2013. The findings showed an upward trend in their perceptions in SDL, SDL with ICT and CoL with ICT. Further analysis of the 2013 data showed that there were some significant differences across different levels (i.e.: primary, secondary, and junior college levels). These findings suggest professional development areas that could further support teachers in integrating SDL and CoL activities in class.
