Teaching With(out) Technology: Secondary English Teachers and Classroom Technology Use
Flanagan, Sara; Shoffner, Melanie
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v13 n3 p242-261 Sep 2013
Technology plays an integral role in the English Language Arts (ELA) classroom today, yet teachers and teacher educators continue to develop understandings of how technology influences pedagogy. This qualitative study explored how and why two ELA teachers used different technologies in the secondary English classroom to plan for and deliver instruction. Analysis revealed that the English teachers, one novice and one experienced teacher, valued integrating technologies into their instruction and experienced similar challenges in that integration. The novice teacher believed that technologies played a primary role and centered her instruction on the available technologies, while the experienced teacher viewed technologies as having a secondary role, choosing to integrating technologies only if they added to her instruction.
