Student View of Classroom Technology Use.
Beers, Morris I.; Paquette, Karen; Warren, Jennifer M.
Nine schools in a large suburban school district were selected to receive training on the use of information technology. Teachers were trained to use the World Wide Web, create their own Web pages, use Microsoft PowerPoint, and use HyperStudio. Both teachers and a random sample of students were surveyed and interviewed near the end of the year regarding the use of instructional technology in their classrooms. Students seemed to be very aware of the use of technology in their classes. Classroom use of technology varies with grade level grouping (K-2, 3-5, and 6-12). Teacher and student perceptions of how technology is used in the classroom were quite different. The use of computers seems to be greatly affected by location within the school and philosophy of each school, which varied with grade level. (Author/MES)
