Abstract: This study utilized the positive technological development (PTD) framework to understand how students and parents perceive PTD differently. Data were collected from 482 Primary 5 (Grade 5) and Primary 6 (Grade 6) students and parents at three primary schools in Hong Kong. The results indicated that the students and parents differed in their perceptions of PTD. In general, the students reported higher levels of Perceived Technological Efficacy and Social Uses of Technology than did the parents, whereas the parents reported a higher level of Technological Contribution. The discrepancy between student and parent perceptions of PTD provides a rich context for discussing the parenting of the iGeneration in school and at home.
