Characteristics of Schoolteachers' Adaptation to the Values of Computerization
Shcheglova, S. N.
Russian Education and Society, v49 n8 p33-42 Aug 2007
The computerization of Russian society is a dynamic, complex, goal-directed, innovative process of the creation, dissemination, and use of information and communication technologies [ICT]. This process entails a transition to a qualitatively new and different state of society, the emergence of new group communities and a revision of traditional or obsolete premises and norms. Among groups of people who take part in a process of innovation it is reasonable to single out main groups (those that are directly or regularly involved in the process) and peripheral groups (rare consumers or users of the results of the adoption of innovations). The schoolteacher intelligentsia of Russia (people who teach in general education schools) represents one of the main groups involved in computerization. The computerization of the schools cannot be successful unless teachers achieve successful adaptation, unless they accept the values of the information society. In this article, the author explores the characteristics of schoolteachers' adaptation to the values of computerization. (Contains 1 figure.)
