Mentoring for Technology Success.
May, Marilyn K.
Educators today are under tremendous pressure to make use of the latest in technology while continuing to provide quality educational experiences for students. Quality staff development is essential and costly, especially in rural areas. This study looked at the use of mentoring as a positive strategy for building teacher confidence in technology application skills. The study emerged as a grant to direct funds into rural schools and was specifically targeted for educational improvement through technology implementation. Qualitative and quantitative data indicated that mentoring was a positive influence on teacher technology confidence, technology integration, school climate, and staff development effectiveness.
