Cross-Cultural Comparison of Teachers' Views upon Integration and Use of Technology in Classroom
Kayalar, Fethi
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v15 n2 p11-19 Apr 2016
The purpose of the study is to compare teachers' views upon integration and use of technology in classroom. To make cross-cultural comparison of teachers' views, we interviewed with nine teachers in a primary school in city of Erzincan, Turkey and compared the views of the teachers with those of the teachers living in foreign countries. To obtain the data from other countries, we used the comments of the teachers who shared their views with us at "Edutopia" Blog Page. We used a qualitative research method with semi structured interview form to gather data and to compare them with the comments in blog page. Having analysed, compared and discussed the views of the teachers, we recommended that the school principals, teachers and students should be encouraged to integrate technology and use mobile technology in classroom so that the students can prepare themselves for competition and race with the others and future careers.
