Supply Teachers And Information Technology
To investigate to what extent supply teachers use Information Technology and participate in online discussion forums
Year of posting: 2005
Abstract:Information Technology is a very useful tool for conducting lessons and maintaining high levels of interest in the classroom, and professional discussion forums are very effective for staff-developing and in-servicing teachers. They also enable teachers to interact professionally and exchange views. I would like to establish supply teachers' IT skills and to find out to what extent they actually know about online discussion forums and participate in them.

StudyI have been a teacher for twenty-three years, having qualified as a teacher in 1980. I have been a Head of Deparment for about fifteen years and one of my responsibilities was to staff develop teachers in my department and develop materials for that purpose. I am currently studying computers and e-facilitation.Through the e-facilitation course I am doing I have learnt to participate in online forums and I have seen how valuable they are in promoting the effectiveness of teachers.
