Description

DissertationDoctor of Education (EdD)Educational LeadershipThe purpose of this mixed methods study was to explore middle school teachers’ pedagogy and their transformations as they implement one-to-one laptop instructional technology in their classroom environments. Statistical correlation and narratives provided a greater understanding of the research problem. A mixed methods approach was the most appropriate research design for this study due to the nature of information being collected. Data collection draws from several sources, such as questionnaires, interviews, or analysis of documents. In this study, the researcher used the questionnaire responses from 48 teachers and transcripts of semi structured focus group interviews of four teachers to create a framework of how middle school teachers perceive their self-efficacy in using one-to-one laptop instructional technology, their preparedness within Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to implement instructional technology, and how their pedagogical practices may have changed.Electronic theses & dissertations collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University
