E-education: Changing the Mindsets of Resistant and Saboteur Teachers
Oriji, Abraham; Amadi, Reginald
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n16 p122-126 2016
Advances in information and communication technology are reshaping the ways educators convey learning experiences to learners. To date, most teachers firmly believe that the traditional method of instruction is the best. Hence, there is the need to change the mindsets of these educators towards the use of technologies in the classroom in order to meet the current demands of learners. Consequently, educators need to acquire and utilize the necessary information and communication technologies of today. Siddiqui (2008) asserts that if the technology is to be appropriately used to support student collaboration, inquiry, and interactive learning, teachers' beliefs about teaching/learning must change. This paper, therefore, highlights the need for resistant and saboteur teachers in Nigeria to change their mindsets towards the use of technologies in the classroom in order to meet the emerging cultural change in teaching and learning process in the contemporary age. It examined why teachers' are skeptical about using technologies in the classroom. The scholars' proffered suggestions to encourage resistant teachers to learn the use of new technologies in teaching/learning process. However, the benefits and the future of use of these technologies in the classroom by teachers' were concisely examined.
