Personal Statement


Personal Statement

I am interested in emerging technologies and their impact on education such as smartphones, wikis, twitter, iPads, etc…. More specifically I am curious as to how open teachers and administrators are to integrating these technologies into their curriculum at the middle and high school level. I am currently working on my thesis in Science Education at Florida State University. My project will attempt to describe teacher and administrator attitudes/beliefs towards Web 2.0 technologies by conducting a survey. Some questions I would like to explore:

1. Are educators willing to use emerging technologies to support student centred learning?  (Technology is often integrated if it supports a teacher centred model i.e. online grade books, LCD projectors, PowerPoint, etc…)

2. How open are educators to adapt their curriculum to new technologies?

3. Is there a correlation between educator age (years of service) and openness to applying emerging technologies in the classroom?

3. Are educators willing to learn about technology from their students? (Are digital immigrants willing to learn from digital natives?)
