Middle School Technology Use--Design Impediments versus Classroom Needs.
Abate, Ronald J.; Bagaka's, Joshua Gisemba
This paper reports on the relationships among classroom teaching, learning activities and technology integration in the middle school classroom. The results are based on a comparison of three studies conducted across diverse middle school settings. The studies considered three primary questions: (1) Are specific learning activities identifiable across middle school classrooms? (2) Are the technologies available to the schools supportive of the classroom goals of teachers and students? and (3) What reasons influence the use of current technology in classroom learning activities? A learning activity-oriented viewpoint guided the research focus. Documented within the study are the typical learning activities and potential role for technology within the classroom learning environment of middle schools. Includes four tables and two figures. (Contains 12 references.) (Author)
