Experiences, Perceptions and Attitudes on ICT Integration: A Case Study among Novice and Experienced Language Teachers in the Philippines
Dela Rosa, John Paul Obillos
International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v12 n3 p37-57 2016
The influence of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in developing ways on how to better deliver instruction has been regarded as beneficial in education. In language teaching, the use of ICT is an impactful experience. It is therefore the purpose of this study to delve into the experiences, perceptions and attitudes of a novice and an experienced language teacher about ICT integration in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). Establishing similarities and differences on the experiences, perceptions, and attitudes of the subjects was further aimed in this research. Results revealed that the experienced language teacher had more exposure to ICT use than the novice teacher. However, the novice teacher makes use of more ICT-related materials and activities in her language class. Both teachers also have positive views on the impact of ICT on students' overall learning and achievement. Moreover, the novice teacher views ICT use as time-consuming and does call for a more knowledgeable manipulation of technological devices. The experienced teacher gives more favor to the advantages ICT contributes to language teaching, but views insufficiency of resources and services like limited Internet access as detrimental to effective ICT integration. On the other hand, both subjects also had positive attitudes towards ICT integration in English Language Teaching (ELT) and hoped that ICT use would later be strengthened in the Philippines. At the end of the paper, implications on the use of ICT in education and in language teaching among basic education institutions in the Philippines are presented.
