Multicultural e-Learning Project and Comparison of Teachers', Student Teachers' and Pupils' Perceptions about e-Learning
Orly, Michael
Multicultural Education & Technology Journal, v1 n3 p178-191 2007
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to describe a special multicultural project in e-learning that was accompanied by a research. In this project, student teachers experience the planning, implementation and receiving of feedback on computerized teaching of children from diverse multicultural groups. The aim of the research was to examine what e-learning is according to teachers, pupils and student teachers from diverse cultural backgrounds. Design/methodology/approach: The research population in the sample included 130 respondents in three groups: teachers', student teachers' and pupils'. Findings: The uniqueness of this research is the comparison of the three groups and the results that show that in most areas that were checked, significant differences were found between the perception of the teachers, pupils and student teachers. Practical implications: Teachers and student teachers should know what their pupils think of e-learning and should consider it in order to improve their performance in e-learning. The study's findings have significant implications for education systems and teachers in the design and implementation of online projects. Originality/value: The value of the research findings is that they illuminate similar and differing viewpoints concerning e-learning in culturally as well as functionally diverse populations. Teachers and pupils perceive e-learning differently, and this has a direct influence on teaching and learning. (Contains 6 tables.)
