Teacher Dispositions as Predictors of Classroom Technology Use
Vannatta, Rachel A.; Fordham, Nancy
Journal of Research on Technology in Education, v36 n3 p253-271 Spr 2004
This study examined various teacher dispositions that predict technology use among K-12 teachers. The Teacher Attribute Survey was administered to 177 K-12 teachers from six Northwest Ohio schools. This instrument measured a variety of teacher attributes, such as teacher self-efficacy, philosophy, openness to change, amount of professional development, and amount of technology use in the classroom. A forward multiple regression was conducted to identify the best combination of variables that predicts classroom technology use among K-12 teachers. Results indicate that the factor combination of amount of technology training, time spent beyond contractual work week, and openness to change best predicted classroom technology use.
