In-Service to Practice: Effectiveness of Using Technology on Curricular Integration in the Classroom
Master of Science
Teachers are expected to integrate technology in their lesson plans. However, many lack the skills to identify the integration process. Teachers lack the training in instruction, and, subsequently omit integrating technology. The purpose of this study is to evaluate teacher perceptions of the effectiveness of specific training in technology on teachers' ability to develop integrated lessons.
Five teachers from suburban public and private elementary schools participated in this study. Teachers responded to research questions in a one to one interview format. Teachers reported that they lacked the training to integrate technology into their lesson plans. They commented that they would use Internet, educationally based programs, and computers in the classroom if they were provided with training.
