Attitude towards, and Awareness of Using ICT in Classrooms: A Case of Expatriate Indian Teachers in UAE
Bindu, C. N.
Journal of Education and Practice, v8 n1 p10-17 2017
It is a widely accepted fact that ICT integration in education offers a wider opportunity for both teachers and students to fulfill the increasing demand of the contemporary world. The current paper explores the awareness of, and attitude towards, using ICT in teaching by the Indian teachers in UAE based on their gender and age. The data were collected through both questionnaire and interview. At the first phase of the data collection 57 teachers from 7 Indian curriculum schools were selected through consecutive sampling technique and 10 teachers, who were also subject coordinators, were selected through purposive sampling at the second phase. The findings of the study, through the analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data, revealed that teachers have a positive attitude towards using ICT irrespective of their gender and age. However, the ICT awareness of teachers is at the average level and is influenced by their gender and age. The findings suggest that ICT use for educational purposes should be given greater consideration than it currently receives. In general, the results were consistent with those previously reported in studies related to the use of ICT in the educational settings. (A bibliography is included.)
