A Study of Changes in Attitude towards Science in a Technology Based K-8 Preservice Preparation Science Classroom.
Norby, Rena Faye
This paper presents a study investigating K-8 preservice teachers' attitudes towards science in a technology-based science content course. The study was conducted in a learning environment in which hands-on science, educational technology, collaboration, and constructivism were promoted. Results suggest that using technology in classroom teaching for something other than recordkeeping or word processing encourages preservice teachers to be more informed and enthusiastic, and thus students show more self-confidence.
