Abstract

The following is an assessment of an introductory instructional technology course of 71 teachers using a pre- and a post-test technological survey. We measured the change in the teachers' own perceptions of their motivation to teach and to use more commonly-used instructional technology for teaching as well as related challenges. The conclusion is that an introductory course motivates and gives confidence to teachers to use technology in their classrooms, while the lack of technological resources and technological support frustrates them.
