Carver, Lin B.
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v15 n1 p110-116 Jan 2016
This study explores K-12 teachers' perceptions of the benefits and barriers to technology integration by either teachers or students in K-12 instruction. The sample was composed of 68 students enrolled in online classes in the graduate studies in education department of a small private liberal arts institution in the southeast. Data was collected using an anonymous, online survey. Open and axial coding was used to identify themes in barriers and benefits in both student and teacher technology use. Even with the emphasis on providing 1:1 technology, availability of technology was most frequently identified barrier, while increased engagement was the most frequently identified benefit. Content instructional issues or teacher knowledge were not as stronger identified barriers or benefits.
