This is an article on students’ perception of the integration of technology in a college during the Spring of 2019. The SAMR Model was used as the framework which categorizes four different degrees of classroom technology integration. The study identified that there were positive results in students’ performance based on the experiment which was conducted between two groups of control and experimental. There were 60 college students who participated and 30 went through interventions while the rest 30 students were controlled group. A questionnaire was distributed to the experimental group to gather information on their perception of the effectiveness of the integration. The survey identified that the perception of students on the impact of technology was positive based on eight factors such as enjoyment, building confidence, enhancing skills, active involvement of students to name a few. These factors were also discussed based on the Social Cognitive Theory of behavioral, cognitive, and environmental factors. The study also was found aligned with the 7 ISTE Standards for Students (2016).
