01 SES 07 A, Technology and Professional Development
Despite a number of past and present long- and short-term national and international policy initiatives that aimed to foster in teachers a willingness to integrate information and communications technology (ICT) into classroom practice, research has determined that many teachers remain reluctant ICT adopters. If future use of ICT is to realise its aim of supporting teaching and enhancing learning it is important that teachers are able to participate in appropriate, targeted professional development that enables them to use ICT effectively. Various theoretical frameworks have been proposed to support such a process, however much research in the past has been dominated by two research strands, documenting and describing ICT uptake at micro, meso and macro levels and recording and evaluating the impact of the adoption of specific applications and technologies. Whilst provision of ICT resources and evaluation of their impact is important, it is argued that now is the time to determine what sorts of guidance would best enable teachers to use ICT effectively to enhance learning so that future generations may reap the potential benefits of ICT-supported teaching.
. A review of literature supported the development of four research questions:
- To what extent does this cohort of newly qualified primary teachers use ICT to support teaching and learning in the classroom during the first two years of their teaching career?
- What sorts of ICT resources do these teachers report using?
- Which factors do they report as having an impact on classroom practice?
- What are the future implications of these findings with regard to CPD provision?
