The Effects of Technology on the Attitudes of Classroom Teachers (E-TACT).
Owens, Charlotte H.; Magoun, A. Dale; Anyan, Jan
This study focuses on the teacher link in the successful implementation of technology in the learning environment and investigates the attitudes toward technology of teachers from three school districts in Louisiana. Differences among school systems, teaching level, gender, and teaching experience are studied. To assess the attitudes of the respondents in the study, the Teacher's Attitude Toward Information Technology (TAT) survey instrument was distributed to the faculties of the Monroe City Schools (an urban system), the Ouachita Parish Schools (an urban/rural system), and the Winn Parish Schools (a rural system). Approximately 500 questionnaires were distributed to the faculty of these systems; of these, 242 were returned. Findings showed that attitudinal differences about technology were present among the teachers representing these systems. The urban system teachers exhibited a better attitude compared to the urban/rural and the rural system. (MES)
