Teachers and Technological Tools in the Middle School.
Jin, Seung; Abate, Ronald J.
This paper provides an overview of a pilot study conducted in Northeast Ohio. A survey was distributed to ten middle school principals representing urban and suburban school districts; each principal was asked to select two teachers to participate in the survey. The study considered two questions: Are the technologies available in schools supportive of the classroom goals of teachers and students? and, What resources influence the use of technologies in their learning activities? This study examines what learning activities are applied across a variety of subject areas, how technology assists students' learning activities, and why technology is/isn't used in the typical learning activities. The study documented the typical learning activities and potential role for technology within the classroom learning environment of the effective middle school teacher. Learning activities such as data collection, data analysis, visual/written communications, and design were employed as core categories for analysis of technology use, non-use, and potential.
