Pritchett, Christopher G.; Pritchett, Christal C.; Wohleb, Elisha C.
SRATE Journal, v22 n2 p29-38 Sum 2013
This research study was designed to determine the degree of use of Web 2.0 technology applications by certified education professionals and examine differences among various groups as well as reasons for these differences. A quantitative survey instrument was developed to gather demographic information and data. Participants reported they would be more likely to use technology with training/professional development. The highest reported barriers preventing the use of Web 2.0 technology applications were a lack of time, lack of necessary knowledge and skills, and budget constraints. Professional development is needed for certified educators; it should address how to use and implement technology. (Contains 3 tables.)
