Abstract

Web 2.0 technologies are being implemented into K-12 classrooms; however the rate of utilization and implementation lags behind students’ usage outside school settings. Utilization of Web 2.0 tools in educational settings can provide innumerable instructional benefits, specifically, the potential to develop 21st century learning skills. The study will investigate teachers’ perceptions and usage (type and amount) of emerging technologies and compare potential variations within and between rural, urban, and suburban school settings, in an effort to identify relationships between school setting and use, perceptions of benefits, and factors that influence adoption or non-adoption decisions of these technologies. This study will help inform preservice teacher preparation, support and professional development opportunities for inservice teachers, as well as future research.
