ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Alabama
The purpose of this study was to analyze the perceptions of teachers about traditional teaching and teaching with technology in the classroom. The study focused primarily on teachers' perceptions about teaching strategies such as lecture, whole group discussion, drill and practice, and teaching with technology. The quantitative research design was utilized and data were generated from a survey given to certified teachers in two high schools. The data collected were analyzed using a t-test and Pearson Correlation test. The two tests were used to determine if there were significant differences in the perceptions of teachers regarding traditional teaching and teaching with technology in the classroom. The findings revealed no significant differences in the perceptions of the teachers across both schools about traditional teaching. The findings did reveal that there were significant findings in the perceptions of teachers across both schools about technology on the subscales of ability and comfort, and beliefs. Also, this study provides evidence that professional development and more technology are needed in the schools. The results of this study can help educators to focus on improving teaching strategies related to traditional teaching and technology integration that will benefit instruction and the learning process in the classroom.
