Abstract

This study investigated elementary grade teachers' personal experience with instructional computing in classroom instruction and depicts the causes of comfort or discomfort among teachers in using computers at elementary grade teaching. The specific study involved ten elementary grade teachers from randomly selected schools in Western New York. Open-ended investigative questions were used to guide the interview sessions. The results revealed a disparity of opinion between teachers who are more comfortable in using computers over others.
