Online Submission, Participatory Educational Research (PER) v2 n1 p79-90 Apr 2015
The aim of this study development and validation of a teacher attitude scale toward Information Technology Mentor Teachers (ITMT). ITMTs give technological support to other teachers for integration of technology in their lessons. In the literature, many instruments have been developed to measure teachers' attitudes towards the technological tools and instructional technology but almost none proposed to collect information about their attitudes towards ICT coordinators. Perception of teachers is very important because ICT support can play a crucial role in developing positive teacher attitudes toward technology and also successful implementation of technology in curricula. Most of the schools have expensive technological equipment but many teachers have been frustrated by lack of support in integrating these technologies into their classroom. In this regard, in order to evaluate teachers' attitudes toward information technology mentor teachers, an attitude scale with 21 items was prepared by considering related literature, expert opinions and interview results. The scale was administered to 40 teachers form a public elementary school. Based upon the factor and reliability analysis, teacher attitude scale toward ITMT has been developed with 17 items and three factors. Coefficient alpha values belong to each subscales, confidence, willingness and efficacy were 0.88, 0.80 and 0.87 respectively. Appendix A presents the Correlation Matrix.
