How Are Alabama's Teachers Integrating the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards in the Classroom: Measuring Technology Integration's IMPACT--Roberts Middle School.
Ash, Stephanie B.; Sun, Feng; Sundin, Robert
Alabama's Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers To Use Technology program developed an assessment instrument to measure the level of technology integration into Alabama's classrooms. The instrument asked questions related to five factors: (1) general instruction integration; (2) teaching students to use technology; (3) managing technology resources; (4) general technology skills; and (5) essential conditions (for technology use). The survey was posted on the World Wide Web, and all classroom teachers in the state were issued a login name and password to access the survey. Responses were received from 329 teachers from 10 schools in 2002. This study analyzed responses of teachers from one middle school. Responses indicate that teachers at the middle school are still at the beginning level of technology integration in the classroom, and that the school does not provide enough essential conditions for technology support. The school is still at the beginning stages of technology integration, although teachers appear to have the general technology skills to integrate technology at a higher level.
