This study aimed to identify the degree of practices of chemistry teachers for educational technological competencies from their point of view and from the point view of their students in Jordan. The study sample consisted of (992) male and female students, and (38) teachers of chemistry who teach secondary level students at AL- Quwaysimah Education Directorate. To accomplish the study's objectives, the researcher developed two questionnaires: one for teachers and the other for students. Each questionnaire included five domains (Science Lab, Using Technological Techniques and Teaching Aids, Teaching Design, Producing Educational Materials and Programs, Operating Machines, Evaluation). The findings of the study have shown that the degree of practices for educational technological competencies by chemistry teachers, from their own point of view and from the viewpoint of their students on the whole tool, was moderate. The findings have also indicated that there were statistically significant differences in the degree of practices the educational technological competencies attributed to the gender variable, in favor of female teachers, and class variable, in favor of second secondary grade students. There were not statistically significant differences in the degree of practices the educational technological competencies attributed to the student gender and teaching experience for teacher variables. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher has recommended conducting more studies that investigate the degree of practices of other scientific subject teachers for educational technological competencies, relying on the estimations of other parties (Head Teachers, Educational Supervisors). The researcher has also recommended preparing Rehabilitation Programs for Teachers in-service that provides them with necessary educational technological competencies needed to achieve active teaching.
