Abstract: This paper reports on the preliminary findings of the first phase of a longitudinal Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project that investigates participating teachers’ perception of their technology integration skills and use, and the factors that impede effective technology integration. Multiple data sources were used to generate qualitative and quantitative data. Results confirm that coursework that provides direct instruction and hands-on experience can enhance teachers self efficacy. The second phase of this study will enable the researchers to determine if the coursework did result in increased use of technology in teachers’ K-12 classrooms.
