Challenges and Solutions When Using Technologies in the Classroom
Johnson, Amy M.; Jacovina, Matthew E.; Russell, Devin G.; Soto, Christian M.
Grantee Submission
The purpose of this chapter is to present common challenges faced by educators when attempting to integrate technology in the classroom, and offer potential solutions to those problems. Examination of these issues should be valuable to current and future educators, school administrators, as well as educational technology researchers. The chapter begins by introducing the challenges to technology integration that are external (extrinsic) to the teacher, including access to resources, training, and support. We then present barriers that are internal to teachers, including their attitudes and beliefs, resistance toward technology in the classroom, and their knowledge and skills. The next section presents international perspectives on the technology integration problem, focusing on a case in Chile. The chapter concludes with a short summary of the chapter and condensed recommendations for effective technology implementation. [This paper was published in: S. A. Crossley & D. S. McNamara (Eds.)
