Constructivism and Technology Use: Findings from the Impacting Leadership Project
Overbay, Amy; Patterson, Ashley S.; Vasu, Ellen S.; Grable, Lisa L.
Educational Media International, v47 n2 p103-120 Jun 2010
This study used two surveys, the Activities of Instruction 2.0 (AOI 2.0) and the School Technology Needs Assessment (STNA) to assess the relationship between teachers' level of constructivism and their level of technology use. Results indicate that constructivist practices and beliefs were significant predictors of technology use, after accounting for the contribution of other individual level demographic variables, and school-level environmental factors. Teachers with more constructivist instructional practices were more likely to report using technology; similarly, teachers who believed more strongly that IT was a useful tool for student-centered/constructivist teaching were more likely to use technology. (Contains 8 tables and 3 notes.)
