Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate a state sponsored initiative designed to assist educators in infusing technology into the curriculum while at the same time meeting the Georgia technology standards. The sample for this study consisted of four hundred eighteen (418) teachers and administrators from 90 Georgia schools. The pretest and posttest surveys included fourteen, five-point Likert items, and the posttest contained five open-ended questions. Quantitative data analysis revealed there was a significant difference between the mean scores of the pretest and posttest scores, p = .000. Qualitative data revealed that students had a positive experience in the class and learned how to use and integrate technology into their classroom specific curriculum. The combination of both the statistical and qualitative analysis led the researcher to conclude that the impact of the course on the student's perception and integration of technology into the curriculum was dramatic.
