Factors Influencing EFL Novice Teachers' Adoption of Technologies in Classroom Practice
Dinh, Huong Thi Bao
Online Submission, Paper presented at CAMTESOL (5th, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Feb 29, 2009)
A primary research conducted with 12 Vietnamese teachers of English using questionnaires and semi-structured interviews has revealed that big investment into technological infrastructure and the top-down approach of implementing technological change in English teaching are not a guarantee for the adoption of technology by English teachers in their classroom practice. Even when the teachers are receptive to using technologies and not afraid of losing face when they are not as technically competent as their students, without prompt technological professional development and timely technical support for teachers, the teachers cannot fully adopt technologies in their classroom teaching. Appended are: (1) A Sample of the questionnaire; and (2) Interview Questions. (Contains 2 figures.) [Paper was selected to include in CAMTESOL SELECTED PAPERS 5th Edition in October 2009.]
