Multiple intelligences; Computer-assisted instruction; Teachers--Attitudes;
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between teachers' learning preferences, self-perceptions of multiple intelligence profiles, and attitudes toward computer usage, including the incorporation of computer technology into their classrooms. Data for this survey were obtained from a population of teaching and administrative faculty from a small, Midwest, rural public school district. Access and education that results in higher levels of experience were found to be critical variables, in agreement with professional literature to date. These factors, however, did appear to influence personal learning preferences in some instances and the multiple intelligence profiles provided valuable insight into maximizing individual benefits of computer related instruction. Processes and conclusions are of particular interest to school district staff development personnel seeking to integrate contemporary adult education perspectives into computer technology education for district professionals.
