Examining Changes of Preservice Teachers' Beliefs about Technology Integration during Student Teaching
Hsu, Pi-Sui
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v21 n1 p27-48 Jan 2013
The purpose of this qualitative case study was to examine changes in preservice teachers' beliefs about technology integration during the student teaching semester in USA. This study used in-depth interviews, review of documents, and observations. The findings indicated the preservice teachers' beliefs about technology integration changed in two directions. Although changes may be attributed to cooperating teachers' practices about technology integration, this study suggested that cooperating teachers' modeling does not necessarily lead preservice teachers to change their beliefs about technology integration in a positive way. Thus, this study suggested a need to build reflective activities for preservice teachers to gain access to the cooperating teachers' thinking process in the modeling process. (Contains 4 tables.)
