Assessing Environmental Literacy of Pre-Vocational Education Teachers in Jordan
Al-Dajeh, Hesham I.
College Student Journal, v46 n3 p492-507 Sep 2012
This study assesses the environmental literacy (knowledge, attitudes, and concerns) of pre-vocational education teachers. A total of 124 teachers participated in the study. Data was collected through a closed ended questionnaire. Questionnaire validity was established by content and a Cranach's alpha coefficient used to determine reliability. The data was analyzed using SPSS 15.0. Participants possessed an inadequate knowledge of environmental issues, but demonstrated positive environmental attitudes and expressed high levels of interest on environmental issues. While statistical analyses revealed no significant relationships between environmental knowledge, attitudes and concerns, a significant relationship was evident between attitudes and concerns only. Gender, age, and academic qualifications had no measurable effects on the environmental knowledge, attitudes, and concerns of participants. The principal sources of information for participants on environmental issues was internet based content. (Contains 9 tables.)
