Abstract
In recent years, Mongolian education policies focus on student-centered education and the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in teaching and learning. This study aims to understand the factors affecting teachers’ perceptions on use of ICT for student-centered education as there lacks its study in Mongolian context. Both quantitative and qualitative analysis were conducted. The study found: 1) teacher’s professional competency and perception of benefits on use of ICT are significant factors affecting the use of ICT tool for student-centered education; 2) teacher cooperation is affecting teachers’ perceptions on use of digital contents for student-centered education; and 3) endogenous teacher level factors such as teacher’s job satisfaction and self-confidence are affecting teachers’ perception on the use of ICT for student-centered education.
