Abstract/Description

Professional development in teacher preparation for using technology in their classrooms is important. Many teachers do not receive adequate training in integrating technology into classroom practice. The purpose of this study is to identify teacher perceptions of the amount of training they feel they need in order to successfully work with children, integrating aspects of technology use in teaching. A review of the literature revealed that teachers reported an increase in self-confidence if they felt they received effective training during their professional development sessions.

This is a qualitative study using a Likert scale designed to self-evaluate the amount of training and increased personal technological abilities. Teachers at several elementary schools in Northern California school districts were identified through their personal connection with the researcher. They were asked to participate in a study of their views concerning technology professional development and subsequent implementation.

Keywords: professional development, self-perceptions, technology training for teachers
