Introducing Learning Technologies into Classroom in Accordance with Teacher's Aptitudes
MetadataShow full item record
Although the approaches about how to manifest the technology innovation could contribute to the development of innovative learning technologies, the neglect of teachers’ individual differences in technology applications may interrupt the technology diffusion. In this paper two case studies about teaching with innovative learning technologies (including mobile learning environment and interactive response system) are discussed to show how teachers' characteristics influence their teaching with technology and to display a useful way to help teachers apply the technology in their best way. We expect that considering teachers skills, and attitudes while introducing new technologies for learning will provide wider acceptance of the technology implementation in education.
