Abstract

The mathematics and science education communities are presently—and perhaps constantly—in a state of reform. The mathematics and science standards documents now include the use of technology as a common instructional goal. This article synthesizes the findings from two studies, a qualitative study on implementation concerns of secondary science teachers resulting from the use telecommunications and a quantitative study on technology implementation concerns of middle and secondary mathematics teachers and potential teachers of first-year algebra in North Carolina to determine if teachers in both disciplines have similar concerns when implementing technology in the classroom. Both studies used the Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) to assess teacher concerns and levels of technology implementation. Both disciplines were found to have common technology concerns and implementation issues. Several significant differences also were found. Implications for technology-based staff development are noted.
