Teachers Teaching Teachers: The Belen Goals 2000 Professional Development Project.
Norton, Priscilla; Sprague, Debra
Belen Public Schools (New Mexico) received a Goals 2000 grant for teacher education and technology integration. The Belen Goals 2000 professional development project established two three-day teachers-teaching-teachers workshops. The first focused on using an integrated software package and the second focused on using e-mail and the Internet. Workshops de-emphasized the mechanics of technology and concentrated on integrating technology within the curriculum. They were structured to engage attendees in model lessons, with attendees becoming content-area learners while also learning about technology integration. In order to assess the level of teacher concerns related to the integration of technology as a change or innovation, the Stages of Concern About the Innovation Questionnaire (SoCQ) was administered to participants. The instrument was based on a seven stage developmental model: awareness, information, personal, management, consequence, collaboration, and refocusing. Findings indicated that the workshops changed teachers in subtle and emerging ways; yet this data points only in the direction of change, not toward substantial or deep changes in educational practices.
