Abstract

In the educational systems of today, teachers are the keys to the effective use of computers and multimedia. Qualitative and quantitative studies have often shown that the teacher factor is the most crucial factor for the successful adoption of computer related instructions. Many teachers yearn for a realistic vision of how they will be able to apply such knowledge gained in their educational training to the actual classroom setting. Often, it is only when they begin teaching with these practices they realize what they can or cannot apply. Thus, in order to provide these teachers with a context for using computers and multimedia, the teacher must have the proper motivation and environment to use such technologies. By sharing our experiences and knowledge, we have created a context of how the proper motivation can lead teachers to the successful adoption of using computers and multimedia in the classroom.
