The Valuation by Students of the Use of Computers in Education.
Doornekamp, B. Gerard
Two pilot schools for general secondary education in Enschede (The Netherlands) are taking part in the Technology Enriched Schools Project. One of the research questions is the valuation by the students of the use of computers in education. The valuation is influenced by factors which deal with the perception of the student; the use of computers in teaching-learning situations; the circumstances in which the computers are used; background information on the students; and the frequency of use of computers in education. The research question is investigated by two identical instruments: a paper and pencil questionnaire and a computerized questionnaire. The questionnaire is administered to 816 students. Findings from this study show that about 20% of the students have much experience with computers out of school hours; some students have used the computer at school frequently. No evidence has been found in this study that students with much computer experience at school value the use of computers in education differently from students who have little experience, and the intensity of use of computers for instruction in the pilot schools has not yet affected the enthusiasm and motivation of the students. Thirteen tables and two figures display the findings. A copy of the student questionnaire with a tally of the frequency distribution of responses is appended. (Author/ALF)
