Sugar, William; Wilson, Kenneth
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, v21 n4 p91-98 Sum 2005
This study details our efforts in examining alternatives to inservice technology workshops according to the perspectives of teachers from two school districts located in the southeastern region of the United States. Our initial survey (68% return ratio) and final survey (65% return ratio) asked teachers to respond to the following four areas related to inservice technology workshops, including: technology advice that they currently seek, possible approaches to learn a new technology, ways to improve existing technology inservice workshops, and obstacles that prevent them from integrating technology. In this paper, we present relevant initial survey and final survey results. These results can affect the development of future inservice technology workshops and strategies to facilitate effective technology integration. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
