Abstract

The purpose of this study thus was to empirically investigate the association between teachers’ self-reported reflective practices and their use of student response systems. Analysis of responses from 214 teacher participants from the southeastern US to the Teachers’ Technology Use and Belief Survey (TTUBS) revealed the following findings. First, self-reflection scores and reported SRS use were low yet significantly correlated. Second, an increase in SRS predicts an increase in self-reflection. With regard to the relationship of grade level and level of experience, this study shows SRS use the highest in middle school classrooms and that beginning teachers report using SRS more than experienced teachers. Considerations involving SRS availability, training, and use are discussed relative to the findings. Implications for enhancing professional growth through SRS use and reflective practice also are presented.
