Integrating Technology into the Curriculum: Gaining Confidence with One-on-One Workshops.
Pickens, Heide
This study addresses the issue of integrating technology into the curriculum. It explores how teachers use technology when they are given inservice training that has been customized to meet the needs of each individual for the integration of technology. The research was conducted in a school district in a suburb of Philadelphia. The three teachers chosen for the study were fourth through sixth grade teachers in their second year of technology integration. The researcher worked with the teachers over a 6-week period, once a week for 45 minutes. The one-on-one workshops focused on the integration of technology into the curriculum and introduced software programs that covered math, language arts, social studies, and an introduction to the Internet. The following types of data were collected by the initial survey to choose candidates: Technology Connection Forms to determine the types and quality of lessons developed, e-mail correspondence between teacher and researcher, teachers' journals, students' journals, one-on-one conversations with teachers, exit surveys, and interviews with peer teachers. This report provides background on the teachers and the workshops and discusses student motivation, administrative support, classroom management, implementation, technology support, and outcomes.
