Early Childhood Teachers' Computer Attitudes, Knowledge, and Practices.
Landerholm, Elizabeth
This study surveyed 110 preschool and kindergarten teachers in the greater Chicago area to determine the range of attitudes, knowledge, and practices related to computer usage in their classrooms. The results indicated that over 90 percent of the teachers had positive or very positive personal and professional attitudes toward computers, and that 51 percent used computers in their classrooms. Of that 51 percent that had computers in the classrooms, 20 percent said that their children also used computers in a school lab, while 31 percent had access to only the computer in their classroom. Of the 49 percent who did not have a classroom computer, 20 percent had access to a computer lab for their students, while 29 percent had no access to computers for their students. A total of 36 percent of the teachers had a computer at home, and 67 percent had some training, knowledge, or experience with a computer. Seven percent had no training, knowledge, or experience with computers. (A copy of the survey questionnaire is included. Contains 27 references.) (MDM)
