Abstract

Students' attitudes toward computer technologies have been found one of the important variables that influence their computer achievements. Research has shown that students' experience of using or learning computer technology influences their attitudes toward computer technology. The current study investigated the influences of different teaching methods on students' computer attitudes. Two teaching methods were used in this study: (1) teacher-centered instructive method, and (2) studentcentered constructive method. Two groups of teacher education students served as the sample, each of which learned basic computer skills with one of the two teaching methods. Their computer attitudes were measured and compared in four attitude variables-enjoyment, motivation, importance, and freedom from anxiety. Differences were found between the two groups.
