Students’ low performance in Geometry is due to their problem in visualization. Studies showed that teaching methods using technology can improve students’ achievement in Mathematics. Thus, teachers need a proper guideline on selecting proper technology that will support their teaching. The purpose of this study is to identify the need to develop a pedagogical model of the integration of visualization technology in Mathematics for the topic on Geometry, from the perspective of teachers. This study used a survey method. A total of 60 respondents who teach Mathematics in secondary schools from one of the state in Malaysia were involved in the study. The questionnaire was adapted from the Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) which consists of performance expectations, effort expectations, attitudes towards the use technology, social influence, self-efficacy, facilitating conditions, and behavioral intentions to use visualization technology in teaching. The data was analysed using SPSS version 25. The findings revealed that the majority of teachers (90.0%) agreed to have a pedagogical model that integrates visualization technology for Geometry topic in Mathematics. The findings also showed that gender is a factor that should be considered in designing the model. Hence, the findings suggest that the curriculum of mathematics for secondary school should be reformed to include visualization technology for Geometry.
