This descriptive study determined the level of application of technology integration in mathematics in selected private sectarian higher education institutions in the provinces of Batangas Laguna and Rizal in terms of instruction learning experience and faculty competence. It explored the strength and weaknesses of technology integration in terms of capabilities of the school teachers and students. Respondents involved 142 education students major in mathematics and 24 mathematics teachers. Statistical tools were frequency percentage ranking weighted mean and F-test. The study revealed that there was moderate level of competency and frequency of use of ICT hardware and software. The level of application of technology integration in teaching mathematics was high on instruction faculty competency and learning experience of students. Despite such high level of ICT integration teachers still need to undergo a type of training that will focus on technology-based instruction to maintain the high level of integration. Teachers need to be relevant and updated with the latest trend in technology for further enhancement of their competencies. Thus a technology-based training program is proposed as an effective way to stimulate interest cultivate the skills and maintain the level of proficiency of teachers and students required in technology-integrated teaching and learning mathematics.
