Abstract:
Technology initiatives are becoming commonplace in the U.S. Although technology is widespread, its use by teachers is not always clear. This study addressed teacher dispositions to predict classroom technology integration for a public district in the Southwest United States. A modification of the Teacher Attribute Survey was given to 250 pre-k through 12th-grade teachers, examining teacher self-efficacy, teacher philosophy, openness to change, and classroom technology use. Results showed technology use was significantly related to hours of professional development and willingness to continue graduate courses with no incentive. Implications suggest a shift from teachers learning the technology toward needing resources for implementation.
