Riyadh high schools are not meeting the real world technology needs of their students and teachers in the classroom. The researcher investigated current classroom practices to see if computers and instructional technologies were being used in the areas of math, science and English. A second purpose of the study was to explore the perceptions of the teachers concerning instructional technology in the classroom, its affects, level of computer use and the amount of training teachers had received.
Two researcher-developed surveys were administered: one to teachers and the other to students. The students' achievement was measured by using self-reports. The sample consisted of 97 Riyadh high school 12th grade teachers and 270 students.
The results of the study showed a positive correlation between instructional technology and teacher training. In regard to student achievement, computers do have an impact in science and English, but not in math.
