Understanding Beliefs, Teachers' Beliefs and Their Impact on the Use of Computer Technology (Hacia la compresión de las creencias, convicciones del educador y su impacto en el uso de la tecnología)
Galvis, Héctor Alejandro
PROFILE: Issues in Teachers' Professional Development, v14 n2 p95-112 Oct 2012
This theoretical review addresses the construct of beliefs in education and English as a foreign language, and their impact when integrating technology. A thorough definition and categorization of teachers' beliefs will be provided. In addition, studies conducted in various educational settings examining the effects of teachers' beliefs and the use of technology will be reviewed. Additional information on models attempting to explain human behavior and the use of computers will be presented as well in order to discuss these research results in light of local efforts made to solve the gap of integrating technology through the Computadores para Educar Program in Colombian public schools.
