Teacher Education


This was a research study where five teachers and I participated in the research. I wanted to find out how can teachers from a rural school with limited technological resources be educated to use the existing computers in effective, successful, and meaningful ways. At the same time, how can computers be used as personal tools and as educational tools and how can teachers improve their comfort level, their computer knowledge, abilities and skills. The participants took the California Technology Assessment Profile (CTAP) twice during the research study. I also interviewed them twice during the duration of the study and worked together as a team using computers for thirty minutes every week for a period of six months.
