This is good for explaining why it takes so much effort. But it still a subject matter expert, a passionate proponent, and the flexibility to incorporate methods and strategies for motivating.
Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, August 9, 2012 7:48 AM
Educators are often resistant to using computer technology in the classroom. Therefore, changing teachers’ attitudes is a key factor in fostering technology integration identified teachers’ attitudes as well as expertise in using computers as major factors in the adoption of computers in the classroom.
Although teachers’ attitudes were not historically considered in the introduction of computers into the classroom, many scholars now contend that future successful implementations will need to address teachers’ attitudes toward computers. According to Hignite and Echternacht (1992), it is critical that teachers possess both positive attitudes and adequate computer literacy skills to successfully incorporate technology into the classroom.
Several studies have suggested that attitudes are an important element in teaching children about computers. For example, Todman and Dick (1993) emphasized that an important factor affecting the quality of a child’s experience with computers in school may be the teacher’s attitude toward computers.
Based on an international study involving children, teachers, and computers, Pelgrum and Plomp concluded that:
Teachers are the main gatekeepers in allowing educational innovations to diffuse into the classrooms. Therefore one of the key factors for effecting an integration of computers in the school curriculum is adequate training of teachers in handling and managing these new tools in their daily practices.
Other studies have shown that student’ attitudes about school and learning are likely to affect student achievement and that appropriate teacher training in classroom computer use can be associated with higher student achievement.
It is generally accepted in the literature that appropriate training of teachers should include the ability to use the computer for personal use (i.e., word processing, grade book, etc.) and with students in the classroom.
The instructor who has learned to integrate technology into existing curricula may teach differently than the instructor who has received no such training.
The difference in classroom technique and the greater extent of technology use should have a positive effect on teacher and student attitudes toward information technology.
