The Impact of an Online Collaborative Learning Program on Students' Attitude towards Technology
Magen-Nagar, Noga; Shonfeld, Miri
Interactive Learning Environments, v26 n5 p621-637 2018
This quantitative research examined the contribution of an Online Collaborative Learning (OCL) program on attitudes towards technology in terms of technological anxiety, self-confidence and technology orientation among M.Ed. students. The advanced online collaborative program was implemented at two teacher training colleges in Israel for a period of 10 weeks. It was based on the TEC model that used technology to increase trust between students from different cultures through online learning. Students from the intervention group (N = 47) and the control group (N = 45) completed questionnaires which dealt with their level of collaboration, intrinsic motivation, satisfaction, and attitudes towards technology. Findings of the SEM path analysis indicated that a high level of OCL promoted positive attitudes to technology. Thus, involving students in OCL programs could reduce technological anxiety and increase technological self-confidence and technological liking. However, students' motivation and satisfaction were found to have a strong effect on the change of attitudes towards technology in OCL environments.
