Prospective EFL Teachers' Perceptions of ICT Integration: A Study of Distance Higher Education in Turkey
Hismanoglu, Murat
Educational Technology & Society, v15 n1 p185-196 2012
This paper aims to investigate the perceptions of prospective EFL teachers in the distance higher education system toward ICT implementation in teaching English as a foreign language. The majority of respondents who expressed negative attitudes to ICT integration found the nature, level and delivery of the training inadequate and accordingly affirmed that they do not feel sufficiently competent to use ICT in their future subject teaching without having sufficient prior knowledge of ICT dissemination. The results of the study imply that training that will enable teachers to become competent in and receptive to ICT is quite critical in distance education realms. (Contains 2 tables.)
