Elementary and Secondary School Teachers’ Needs for Media Education: With Focus on Curriculum Development for Professional Development

Hiroki Yoshida
Abstract—The purpose of the study is to identify elementary and secondary school teachers’ needs for media education training courses. A questionnaire survey was conducted from October to November, 2013. The participants were 49 elementary and secondary school teachers. A four point Likert scale questionnaire was used to measure teachers’ needs for the current “curriculum standards” and a free-response style self-report questionnaire was used to identify participants’ needs for new media education in-service teacher training courses. Participants were asked what they want to study in an in-service teacher training course for media education. Participants’ answers were classified using quantification method type III. Results of the research reveal that media education training courses with high needs were: utilizing digital textbooks, utilizing tablet PCs, utilizing interactive blackboards/ whiteboards, ICT integration in education, capacity building for ICT integration, designing ICT integrated lessons, utilizing ICT in specific subjects, and moral issues in education.

Index Terms—Needs assessment, professional development, teacher training, media education, capacity building.
