Educational Technology in the Classroom from the Teacher's Perspective
Roach, Bruce
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Fielding Graduate University
The purpose of this study was to conduct an action research project to examine issues pertaining to technology use and implementation in the classroom from the teachers' perspective. The methodology was to examine existing research and compare that to the new data resulting from this study. New findings within this research show that teachers want to use technology but feel that they need to be included in the development of teacher technology training. Teachers indicated that only they could provide a true perspective on issues within the classroom that can illustrate things such as constructs of time and curriculum. This research concludes with a finding that contradicts some statistical data and finds qualitatively that teachers want to use technology, they want technology training, they see a value in technology, and they believe it can improve student-learning outcomes. With this data, the researcher created an outline of action steps to assist with formulating a technology implementation group, identifying its stakeholders, and creating elements to include within the initial training, which will be implemented later.
