Perceptions of Technology Integration Training Methods Among Technology Teachers in Texas
Thursday, March 10 2:45 PM-3:05 PM
The purpose of this study is to determine if generational differences impact perceptions of technology integration training method effectiveness and level of technology use among Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers of Texas. Training teachers to integrate technological learning tools is critical for the future success of students in a technologically driven society (Stoddart & Neiderhauser, 1993); and the current body of research lacks a clear depiction of what methods of technology integration training educators of various generational cohorts perceive as being most effective. The Technology Integration Training Survey will be distributed to CTE teachers throughout the state of Texas, and data will be analyzed using quantitative methods. This study will provide academic stakeholders data concerning teacher training perceptions and the need for offering technology integration professional development alternatives.
