Abstract

Is knowing how to teach combined with high technological skills sufficient to guarantee the integration of technology that enhances student performance? A study was conducted to investigate differences between student gains by teachers' level of technological skills and by teachers' prior training in integration techniques. Participants were 16 teachers and 387 K-12 students from around the Navajo Nation. The results of a 2 x 2 factorial ANOVA revealed an interaction effect on measures of student learning, with students whose teachers had high technology expertise and had attended contextual training scoring significantly higher (M = 33.43, SD = 22.79) than students whose teachers were high in technological expertise but had not attended training on how to employ that technology in the classroom (M = 14.63, SD = 23.44). This result suggests that teachers need training on how to use technologies within the specific educational context in which they intend to use them.
