The Impact of Peer Support upon the Integration of Technology into a Middle School Classroom
Pantall, Shane
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
This action-research dissertation examined the impact peer collaboration had upon a teacher's comfort level when using and integrating technology in the classroom, attitude toward integrating technology, and improvement of technology skill level. Teachers' responses to the surveys indicated that teachers became more comfortable utilizing technology when collaborating with a colleague. Additionally, teacher's attitude toward technology improved as they became more proficient using the technologies that were available to them. Data suggested the need to provide teachers peers with whom to collaborate, when learning technology, time during the school day for learning new technologies, and opportunities for learning to be led by a peer within the school building.
