Developing a Positive Mind-Set toward the Use of Technology for Classroom Instruction


International Journal of Instructional Media Volume 33, Number 1, ISSN 0092-1815


The aim of this paper is to examine various indicators associated with the development of a positive mind-set toward the use of technology for instruction. The paper also examines the resources available to help teachers keep pace with technological innovation. Electronic classrooms have some complexities associated with them; therefore, support systems are very important to maintain a reasonable degree of functionality. Consequently, this paper explores the nature of the support system that will help teachers to remain current both in theoretical knowledge and technical skills. Schools do not exist in a vacuum; the economic superstructure supports them. As a result, the paper discusses how schools should collaborate with businesses and industries for guidance in terms of developing appropriate technologies that will be relevant and meet workplace demands. (Contains 10 notes.)
