This study analyzed educators' perception of professional development offered through schools in the area of technology implementation and tried to define its perceived effectiveness in meeting the professional development conceptual framework defined by Gardner, Baker, Vogt, and Hodel in "Four Approaches to Professional Development". The purpose of the study was to analyze educators' perceptions of professional development effectiveness and its relationships to technology. Sixty-seven percent of the teachers felt that they received adequate professional development in the area of technology integration, while 89% of the administrators felt that teachers received effective professional development. Only 25% of the professional opportunities that teachers received fell into Frame C and Frame D of the STPI framework put forth in the "Four Approaches to Professional Development". Most of the professional development they received fell into the "one-shot" opportunities that can be found in Frame A and Frame B of the STPI framework.
