Abstract: In technological society, technology plays a crucial role as an integral part of teaching. This research aimed to know teachers’ perspective of using interactive slides in ESL classroom. The population of this research comprises national primary school teachers from Pasir Gudang district. A total of 179 respondents participated in this research. This calculation on the number of respondents was based on Krejcie and Morgan’s (1970) table. The data were gathered via questionnaires and semi-structure interviews. The gathered data were analysed using descriptive analysis method in terms of frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation. The researchers conducted saturated semi-structured interviews to support the findings through questionnaires. The findings of the research revealed that Interactive Slide (IS) is effective to use in the ESL classroom. The study also showed the challenges faced by teachers in using IS. The implication of this research suggested that schools should provide adequate facilities in encouraging teachers to use IS in ESL classrooms and organise activities or programs for teachers to enhance their IS skills. In future researches, it is recommended to widen the population of respondents to other districts or states.
