This study aims to examine knowledge management practices among teachers. A total of 629 teachers from Perlis, Kedah, Penang and Perak were sampled for this study. Specifically, the objective of this study is to observe the differences in knowledge management practices by gender and teaching experience. The response was collected using an instrument comprising of 27 items that measure the five dimensions of knowledge management, namely knowledge acquisition, knowledge documentation, knowledge sharing, knowledge creation and application of knowledge. The difference in knowledge management practices were identified through independent sample t test and one-way ANOVA. The findings show that the knowledge management practices of the teachers are high in which teachers demonstrated with high capability in the practice of knowledge documentation, however it is observed that teachers were lacking in the ability to apply the knowledge. The findings also show that there are significantly different mean scores between male and female teachers in all aspects except for knowledge acquisition. The results of the analysis also showed that there were significant differences based on teacher experience in acquisition and application of knowledge. Based on the findings of this study, it is proposed that any form of professional development activities such as LADAP conducted in schools should consider the gender and the teacher teaching experiences so that the knowledge can be delivered optimally and accepted by teachers.
