Attitudes toward Information Technology of Teachers of the Gifted: Implications for Gifted Education
Shaunessy, Elizabeth
Gifted Child Quarterly, v51 n2 p119-135 2007
This statewide study of teachers of intellectually gifted students examined teachers' attitudes toward information technology. Participants were 418 teachers of the intellectually gifted in a southeastern state who voluntarily responded to a survey about technology attitudes. Results indicated positive attitudes toward technology, with training in information technology as the greatest predictor of attitude. Age of teacher, number of classroom computers, and staff development in information technology also predicted attitudes toward information technology. The relationship of these findings with previous research of attitudes of general education teachers, implications for technology training for teachers of the gifted, and suggestions for future research are discussed.
