The Role of Teacher Inquiry in Helping Prospective Teachers Untangle the Complexities of Technology Use in Classrooms ARTICLE

Journal of Computing in Teacher Education Volume 24, Number 1, ISSN 1040-2454

Abstract

The objective of this research was to explore how authentic technology use and teacher inquiry may coalesce during curriculum-based, technology-enhanced field experiences for prospective teachers. Thirteen inquiries were analyzed using qualitative analytic procedures (Rossman, 1998). Results suggest that teacher inquiry may serve a variety of roles during curriculum-based, technology-enhanced field experiences including (1) as a lens through which to consider student learning, (2) as a bridge between content learned in university courses and authentic practices and (3) as a light bulb for conceptual change. This study suggests the positive outcomes of merging teacher inquiry and curriculum-based, technology-enhanced field experiences warrant further study. As such, the article proposes development of a codebook or heuristic designed to provide a coordinated analysis of multiple inquiry results. (Contains 5 tables and 2 figures.)
