Ertmer, Peggy A.; Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Anne T. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2010
Despite increases in computer access and technology training, technology is not being used to support the kinds of instruction believed to be most powerful. In this paper, we examine technology integration through the lens of the teacher as an agent of change: What are the necessary characteristics, or qualities, that enable teachers to leverage…

Ertmer, Peggy A.; Schlosser, Sarah; Clase, Kari; Adedokun, Omolola – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2014
A mixed-methods research study was designed to examine teachers' knowledge and confidence for implementing a STEM-based problem-based learning (PBL) unit in their 6-12 grade science and math classrooms. Twenty-one teachers (7 in-service and 13 pre-service) participated in an intensive two-week summer workshop during which they engaged in, and then…

Ertmer, Peggy A. – Educational Technology, 2001
Discussion of technology integration into the curricula focuses on the needs of teachers who don't want training or are not prepared to learn from it due to lower levels of skill and confidence. Considers how instructional designers can build teachers' self-efficacy and proposes a model that is responsive to teacher's needs. (LRW)

Sadaf, Ayesha; Newby, Timothy J.; Ertmer, Peggy A. – Computers & Education, 2012
This qualitative study explored pre-service teachers' behavioral, normative, and control beliefs regarding their intentions to use Web 2.0 technologies in their future classrooms. The Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) was used as the theoretical framework (Ajzen, 1991) to understand these beliefs and pre-service teachers' intentions for why they…

Lee, Yekyung; Ertmer, Peggy A. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2006
This study investigated the effect of group discussions and question prompts on students' vicarious learning experiences. Vicarious experiences were delivered to 65 preservice teachers via VisionQuest, a Web site that provided examples of successful technology integration. A 2x2 factorial research design employed group discussions and question…

Ertmer, Peggy A.; Conklin, Deborah; Lewandowski, Judith – 2001
Current teacher educators are being challenged to find opportunities for their preservice teachers to develop both competence in, and confidence for, integrating technology into their curricula. Given the difficulty involved in trying to arrange successful classroom technology experiences for preservice teachers, this study was designed to examine…

Ertmer, Peggy A.; Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Anne; York, Cindy S. – Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, 2007
Exemplary technology-using teachers achieve meaningful technology use in learner-centered, constructive environments despite the presence of both internal and external barriers. In this study, we discuss factors that enabled teachers to overcome these barriers, as identified by 25 winners of statewide technology teacher awards. In addition, we…

Park, Sung Hee; Ertmer, Peggy A. – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2008
Although computers are now commonplace within our lives, integration within schools is much less ordinary. While access and training are no longer considered significant barriers, attention has turned to the potential influence of teachers' beliefs. In response, problem-based learning (PBL) has been proposed as an effective approach for changing…

Schunk, Dale H.; Ertmer, Peggy A. – 1998
This study examined the influence of learning goals and self-evaluation on college students' achievement outcomes during computer skill learning. The researchers hypothesized that providing students with learning goals would focus their efforts on the skills to be acquired, allow for assessment of learning progress, and enhance implementation of…
