Obstacles for Teachers to Integrate Technology with Instruction
Alenezi, Abdullah
Education and Information Technologies, v22 n4 p1797-1816 Jul 2017
This paper covers type one and two educational obstacles in using technology in the classrooms, and considering those obstacles tries to find the answer to the following overarching research question which can help to gauge some obstacles for the educational technology integration for elementary and high school education: What obstacles do teachers identify when integrating technology with instruction? This paper examines the educational obstacles like time to prepare materials and lessons for quality technology-rich lessons, policies and security restrictions, access to resources, and the level of comfort to use technology. Based on examining the type one and two obstacles, the goal is to gain a greater understanding as to why there is a disconnect between the seemingly common educational belief, that technology can and must be used in the twenty-first century classrooms, and actual classroom practices through evaluating the mentioned obstacles.
