Extent of Technology Integration in Instruction by Adult Basic Education Teachers


Adult Education Quarterly Volume 55, Number 3, ISSN 0741-7136


This descriptive research study examined the extent of technology integration in instruction by adult basic education teachers. Teachers are in the earlier stages of integrating technology and are more active in the area of exploration. However, they are not experimenting with the use of technology at the same level and have not been innovative in integrating technology at the advanced level. Teachers feel some anxiety when it comes to technology integration; however, they perceive they are effective regardless of whether they have integrated technology, and they are encountering barriers. As teachers perceive an increase in barriers, their integration of technology decreases; also, as the availability of student e-mail and the number of computers with Internet connection in the classroom and/or lab increases, their integration of technology increases. Teachers' perceived technology anxiety and their self-perceptions of their teaching effectiveness do not explain the extent of technology integration.
