Investigating the Significance of the Role of the Educational Technologist in Middle School Environments: A Qualitative Study.
Davidson, Stephanie; Nail, Melissa; Ferguson, Beth; Lehman, Michael; Hare, R. Dwight
This paper is a report of a study of a federally funded technology innovation grant, C*R*E*A*T*E for Mississippi. Qualitative techniques were used to examine the significance of the role of a school-based educational technologist (ET) in four middle schools. The study also examined how the qualifications that the ET possesses impact the effectiveness of the project. Data were collected through observations, interviews, and document analysis. Preliminary results indicate that knowledge of technology alone does not make a successful ET. Results show that ETs with a background in the middle school setting have a greater impact than ETs without a background in the middle school setting. (Author/MES)
