Exploring 8th Grade Middle School Science Teachers' Use of Web 2.0 Tools
Stinson, Antwuan
Alabama Journal of Educational Leadership, v2 p26-35 Sep 2015
Educational research focuses on the way teachers and students interact and how teachers structure learning environments to promote interactions. Rural schools require more efficient use of limited human resources if they are not able to hire sufficient numbers of teachers who possess the knowledge and skills. The researcher used a phenomenological qualitative framework to explore how in-service science teachers engage students during instruction using emerging technology. Five (5) participants provided reflections about their practices used during classroom instruction. As expected, the teachers' technological usage varied with instructional delivery and changes with engaging students in learning beyond the school curriculum. The findings suggest rural in-service teachers need explicit opportunities to engage in work to help their students learn science concepts and the extent to which participants know their science content and design instruction that cultivate science identities.
