Examine Primary School Teachers' Attitudes Towards Technology Integration in Primary Education
Keywords:ICT, Viewpoints, Primary School Teachers, Attitudes
In today's society, information and communication technology (ICT) has become an ever-present force, deeply ingrained in all aspects of our lives. Its crucial role in our daily routines highlights its significance, especially in education. This paper focuses on exploring the viewpoints of primary school teachers regarding integrating technology in their classrooms. Additionally, it examines how educators' academic backgrounds and years of teaching experience may influence their attitudes toward technology in primary education. A quantitative survey with a convenient sampling of 50 teachers was employed in this study. The research objectives include identifying primary teachers' attitudes toward technology use and investigating potential differences based on teaching experience and educational qualifications. The results highlight an increasing necessity to explore the subtle motivations and concerns that underpin teachers' technological attitudes.
