Attitudes of Prospective High School Mathematics Teachers towards Integrating Information Technologies into Their Future Teaching.
Hazzan, Orit
This paper examines why the number of high school mathematics teachers who integrate computers into their math classes remains relatively low by analyzing the attitudes of prospective high school mathematics teachers. Data were gathered from written questionnaires and class discussions of four classes of prospective high school mathematics teachers in a course on integrating computers in the teaching of mathematics. Analysis of pro and con arguments about integrating computer activities in their future teaching of mathematics revealed a two-dimensional theoretical framework of cognitive, affective, and social factors according to the five categories that represent the class's components; i.e., the learners, the teacher, the learning material, the class atmosphere, and the learning environment. The paper briefly explains what each category means and presents pro and con arguments in each category as presented by the prospective teachers. (MES)
