Gonzales, Stacey
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Northern Illinois University
This quantitative study explored the relationships among high-school teachers' (n = 74) technology self-efficacy, teachers' attitudes towards technology integration, and quality of teachers' technology integration into instruction. This study offered the unique perspectives of in-service high-school teachers as they have first-hand experience within the field of education as contributing educators. A survey tool was utilized to measure teachers' technology self-efficacy and attitudes towards technology. A rubric was used to score teachers' lesson plans in order to determine the quality of technology integration. The findings indicated there were relationships between teachers' levels of technology integration self-efficacy and the quality of their lesson plans (r = 0.41). There were also relationships between teachers' technology self-efficacy and their attitudes towards technology ( r = 0.61). There was also a relationship between teachers' attitudes and the quality of their technology integration (r = 0.26). Additionally, the findings indicated teachers who spend much time learning about technology integration have statistically significant higher self-efficacy than those who seek no out-of-district professional development experiences.
