Abstract

This paper explores factors that influence the use of computer technology in the elementary classroom by teachers involved in a school-wide initiative. The original study consisted of teacher volunteers for one of two groups, a treatment group that received a professional development intervention, and a comparison group that received no professional development. The intervention modeled a constructivist hands-on approach to creating technology-rich lessons based on classroom curricula and Internet technologies. The lessons created by the teachers in the treatment group were posted on a web-based site and made available for access by students of teachers in the research and comparison groups. Administrative surveys were collected at the end of each school year to investigate factors related to the use or nonuse of this computer technology resource by teachers with their students.
