Teacher Beliefs About Educational Software: A Delphi Study
Williams, Diana L.; Boone, Randall; Kingsley, Karla V.
Journal of Research on Technology in Education, v36 n3 p213-229 Spr 2004
A Delphi method was used to determine the extent to which current educational software was meeting the needs of teachers; as well as what changes needed to occur in educational software to make it more effective. Five overarching themes emerged: (a) instructional design issues, (b) curriculum, (c) materials, (d) cost, and (e) meeting specific needs. The cost of software was a concern throughout the study. The belief that educational software should be grounded in both content and purpose was also a major concern. Deficiencies and suggestions for improvement were found.
