Embracing Digital Technologies in Classroom Practice: The Impact of Teacher Identity
Abbott, Rosemary
Australian Educational Computing, v31 n2 2016
It is often perceived that learning in 21st century classrooms will involve extensive use of digital technologies. This paper, based on a qualitative research investigation at a private girls' college in Melbourne, explores the impact of teacher subjectivities on the need to change through the integration of digital technologies into classroom practice. This two-phase study involved a group of teachers who were willing to place their own practice under the microscope and to introduce digital technologies into their classrooms. A narrative approach was utilised to present the stories of these teachers and Activity Theory used as a means to analyse the data revealing the impact of teacher identity on preparedness to change.
