Integrating Techology into Education
  1. ARE FIRST YEAR TEACHERS USING TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOIM?
    1. How do first year teachers feel about technology in the classroom?
      1. CHALLENGES
        1. • In this qualitative research study, 25 elementary school teachers in south central Texas were interviewed. Findings include teachers are overwhelmed by the available technology, problems with the hardware, and restraints on time because of mandated state standardized testing (Flemming & Hynes, 85).

            1. CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
              1. • Although new teachers often have excellent technology for their own personal or professional practice, they typically struggle with how to integrate technology into their instruction. Early career teachers tend to question the effectiveness of using technology for instructional purposes because they believe that use of technology in the classroom increases classroom management issues (Weber & Waxman, 65).
                1. [T]he quality of the overall use of technology improved from the Fall to the Spring semester...This progress indicates increased familiarity and comfort with their role as teacher as well as with technology integration itself, demonstrating a willingness to make changes and take instructional risks as part of the learning process (Weber & Waxman, 80).
              2. TRAINING

                      2. When technology was integrated into the instruction, it was largely used by teachers as a simple content delivery tool for students to take notes and attempt practice problems. Technology use was rarely student-centered, as students had little opportunity for individualized use for exploration or inquiry, or even to produce new knowledge or create products with technology (79-80).
                        1. In the Fall, the novice teachers were between “low-level use of technology” and “somewhat meaningful use of technology.” In the Spring, the teachers were transitioning beyond “somewhat meaningful use of technology” toward “meaningful use of technology (80).”
