Professional development as a means to increasing teachers' self-efficacy for technology integration by Carol Carson Gaither( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the importance of the integration of technology into educational classrooms and why teachers are reluctant to embrace this integration. Systemically evaluates the effects of professional development on teacher change in beliefs in and use of the given workshop focus (technology) and on learning outcomes in participant's classroom. The Stages of Concern Questionnaire (SOCQ) was administered to a treatment group of teachers who agreed to participate in a 40-hour workshop of intense technology training and to a control group of teachers who attended other technology workshops on a volunteer basis. Results indicate a significant increase for the treatment group mean scores on the personal subscale and no significant increase or decrease for the control group. Lack of significant differences between the control group and the treatment group indicate that 40-hours of intense technology training may not be the answer to technology training for teachers
