Abstract

This descriptive study identifies and describes how exemplary technology-using teachers in southwestern Ohio are using technology in their elementary classrooms. Qualitative and quantitative data collection strategies were used. Data gathered from technology coordinators were used to create a questionnaire that was sent to teachers identified as exemplary. The picture that emerges from this study is a classroom that is changing from the traditional classroom to a classroom where a wide variety of teaching techniques are being used. Students use technology predominantly in a tool or constructivist mode. Discrepancies between teacher’s beliefs and practices were examined. Staff-development data were also analyzed.
