Abstract

While technology has been entering the educational setting for many years, there are teachers who continue to be fearful about adopting computers and other technology into their classes. Whenever new technology is introduced, teachers have legitimate concerns: How does this affect my daily routine? Will this replace me as a teacher? How will I learn about the new device? Is it right for the student? (Poirot, 1992b). These concerns can be answered if the technological implementation is successful. Creating a setting that is conducive to initial teacher acceptance of the technology and an eventual adoption of the tool at a personal level is the key (Poirot, 1992b).
