School Cultures, Teachers, and Technology Transformation
Kitchenham, Andrew D.
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v35 n2 Spr 2009
This article outlines a recent study on school culture and technology adoption. Adapting Hargreaves' (2003) model of school cultures, research findings are presented on three schools involved in a study on teacher transformation using educational technology to explain how each school represents a separate school culture and school regime. Each school is profiled to demonstrate, through direct quotes from the participants, how a specific school culture or regime can reflect varying degrees of transformation, and subsequent technology adoption. (Contains 2 tables.)
