Does school context matter: Technology integration barriers in charter schools

Fri, Nov 6, 3:30 to 4:30pm, Hyatt Regency, Floor: 3rd, Studio 3

Short Description

Charter schools started as a reform to establish an alternative to public school system and aimed to provide more effective, innovative and accountable education to minority and disadvantaged students. This study explored charter school teachers’ concerns about technology integration barriers. Document and questionnaire data were collected from 10 charter schools from 236 teachers in the Midwest. The findings suggested variations due to contextual differences between public and charter schools.
