Looking for Cracks in the Pavement: Maltese Teachers' Temporal Adaptation Patterns toward Tablet PC Use in Formal Educational Settings
Camilleri, Patrick
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v18 n2 2018
This paper examines adaptation processes a group of Maltese teachers employed to contextualize tablet PC use in formal educational contexts. Research in information systems stipulates that while time may play an important role in technology, timing for accommodation and adaptation still represents a gray area that requires more attention. Nascent data indicates that over a relatively short period of time, intense but voluntary exposure to tablet PCs triggered attitudinal adjustment processes that catered for accommodation and adaptation toward the technology. The sharing of experiences, technology mediations, and recursive and contextualized dialogues between players seem to have been important in accelerating sense-making adaptation processes, consolidating newly formed technological interpretations.
