Helping Teachers To Actively Choose To Integrate Technology in the Required Language Arts Curriculum through Staff Development and Mentoring.
Russell, Sandra M.
This practicum was developed to increase the use of instructional technology as a teaching strategy among elementary classroom teachers by implementing a series of inservice workshops and mentoring programs. Workshops designed with teacher input were developed and presented to the staff where the writer worked. Interviews were conducted individually with staff members and mentoring teachers. Instruments were developed to be utilized for noting and analyzing activities and workshop attendance. Model lessons were presented for the teachers. Guidelines were provided for use with new faculty members. Analysis of the data revealed that teachers were more willing to integrate technology into their regular language curriculum and were better prepared to use technology as a teaching strategy. The lesson plans and materials which were left at the school served as both guidelines and references. Two figures show the frequency of use and the number of teachers integrating technology. Appendices include the teacher survey; application record; face to face teacher form; agendas for workshops; workshop attendance; troubleshooting manual; and 1996 training plan. (Author/AEF)
