The<br>attitude of science teachers toward DTs and their perceptions of DTs' use<br>in the classroom has a significant effect on their use of ICT in their learning<br>and teaching activities. The main objective of this study was to develop an<br>understanding of how science teachers have attitudes regarding the use of<br>DTs in the science classroom. The paradigm of this research was<br>interpretive and the research method was qualitative. Convenience<br>sampling was utilized to explore science teachers' attitudes toward the use<br>of DTs in public schools. This case study included ten science teachers for<br>individual interviews. In this research, an accessible data source NVivo<br>software was used for thematic analysis to classify, establish, and improve<br>understanding of themes through the data collections. The “three science<br>teachers’ typology” was recognized after the interviews with the<br>participants. The analysis indicated that a science teacher does not easily<br>accept the change that occurs through technology. They would feel the<br>influence and maybe experience acclimation problems. Because the<br>personality trait of a teacher has a direct impact on a student's ability and<br>performance. It is suggested that educational institutions set up teacher<br>training programs to educate them on various cutting-edge strategies and<br>procedures that might assist in developing a positive attitude toward DTs<br>and integrating technology.</p> .
