Teachers' Competence, Affect, Familiarity, and Perceived Skill Regarding Instructional Technology.
Adriano, Celia T.; Shrock, Sharon A.
While innovation advocates have focused on the need to reform Philippine schools to meet the needs and demands of society, little has been done to change the teachers' practices. Recent studies have pointed to inadequate teacher training as one of the reasons for Filipino students' low achievement. This study was conducted to identify specific variables which contributed significantly to teacher competence, affect, familiarity, and perceived skill. The survey research method utilized was a three-part instrument administered by the principal investigator. Four independent variables were analyzed: place of work; academic subject; years of teaching experience; and training in instructional technology. Findings suggest specific variables significant in designing a curriculum for preparing teachers in implementing educational programs. The results of the competence test of this study imply a need for training on the use of instructional design and in the instructional technology field. (Contains 28 references.) (Author/JLB)
