Technology Adoption for Use in Instruction by Secondary Technology Education Teachers
Kotrlik, Joe W.; Redmann, Donna H.
Journal of Technology Education, v21 n1 p44-59 Fall 2009
Research could not be found that addressed how technology teachers are integrating technology in their instruction. However, several studies have been conducted in other areas of career and technical education. Abbot and Fouts (2001) found that over half of the teachers they studied did not routinely use technology in teaching and learning. The lack of technology use in teaching and learning may be related to the adoption of innovations. Fullan indicated that teachers need time to merge their improved knowledge into their instructional practice as a basis for the acceptance of innovations. This study addressed technology education teachers' use of technology in their instruction. The results should contribute to efforts to enable the instructional use of technology to achieve its maximum possible impact. (Contains 8 tables.)
