Education and Information Technologies Vol. 21, No. 6 (2016) pp. 1877–1894
This paper introduces system dynamics modeling to understand, visualize and explore technology integration in schools, through the development of a theoretical model of technology-related change in teachers' practice. Technology integration is a...
Education and Information Technologies Vol. 21, No. 5 (2016) pp. 1351–1366
Risk is an integral part of change. Technology-related change in teachers' practice is guided by confidence engaging in and beliefs about integration. However, it is also affected by how teachers feel about taking risks, experimenting and change....
British Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 46, No. 2 (Mar 30, 2015) pp. 360–369
The purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship of subject areas to teachers' technology integration. Educational technology research has often identified “culture clashes” to explain differences in technology use between subject areas....
Student rules: Exploring patterns of students’ computer-efficacy and engagement with digital technologies in learning
Computers & Education Vol. 101, No. 1 (October 2016) pp. 29–42
Teachers’ beliefs about students’ engagement in and knowledge of digital technologies will affect technologically integrated learning designs. Over the past few decades, teachers have tended to feel that students were confident and engaged users of...

Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies Vol. 26, No. 3 (April 2010) pp. 455–465
The importance of reflection in supporting the continued professional learning of preservice practitioners is well recognised. This study examines one aspect of the outcomes of preservice teachers' reflection: the development of their own self-image ...
Exploring Engineering Instructors' Views about Writing and Online Tools to Support Communication in Engineering
European Journal of Engineering Education Vol. 42, No. 6 (2017) pp. 875–889
To be fully prepared for the professional workplace, Engineering students need to be able to effectively communicate. However, there has been a growing concern in the field about students' preparedness for this aspect of their future work. It is...
Working the system: Development of a system model of technology integration to inform learning task design
British Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 50, No. 1 (January 2019) pp. 326–341
There has been extensive investigation into factors affecting digital technology integration in learning and teaching, but the complexity of integration continues to elude understanding. Thus, questions about how digital technologies can be best...
Technology practices: Confirmatory factor analysis and exploration of teachers' technology integration in subject areas
Computers & Education Vol. 90, No. 1 (2015) pp. 24–35
It is thought that gains in student learning from the use of digital technologies are more likely to be related to teachers' practice than the technology itself. In secondary schooling, a key aspect of this is concerned with understanding how...
