Factors Affecting Counselor Educators' Integration of Educational Technology: A Path Analysis
Kennedy, John F.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Regent University
This study used path analysis to explore the effects of individual and institutional-level factors on counselor educators' integration of technology in counselor education. The study fills a gap in the literature by providing a research-based path model describing counselor educators' integration of technology in counselor education. Counselor educators' confidence and comfort using computers had the largest significant effect on technology integration in the counseling classroom. General school support for computer use significantly affected counselor educators' confidence and comfort levels in using computers. The effect of attitudes toward computer use on confidence and comfort using computers was the largest significant effect among the variables studied. Study findings provide important implications for counselor education programs, counselor educators, and technical support departments.
