What Happens to Teachers ICT Attitudes and Classroom ICT Use when Teachers are made to Play Computer Games?

Ruqiyabi Naz. Awan

Abstract—The aim of this research was to investigate how the ‘level’ of ICT uptake amongst teachers and the ‘quality’ of ICT use in classrooms can be promoted by challenging teachers’ attitudes towards technology adoption. The issue of teachers ‘technology confidence’ and ICT lesson planning skills were tackled by providing training sessions that focused on encouraging them to use educational multimedia game resources for teaching and learning purposes. The results of this study revealed a positive shift in teachers’ attitudes towards the received ICT training and positive attitudes towards the use of ICT in teaching. To encourage greater ICT use by teachers it is suggested that educational game playing workshops (that are aligned to curriculum outcomes) be considered as a form of sustainable in-service training.

Index Terms—Computer-games, in service training, teachers ICT attitudes.
