Teacher Self-Efficacy during the Implementation of a Problem-Based Science Curriculum
Hodges, Charles B.; Gale, Jessica; Meng, Alicia
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v16 n4 2016
This study was conducted to investigate eighth-grade science teachers' self-efficacy during the implementation of a new, problem-based science curriculum. The curriculum included applications of LEGO® robotics, a new technology for these teachers. Teachers' responded to structured journaling activities designed to collect information about their self-efficacy for teaching with the curriculum and, later, to a survey designed to probe their self-efficacy for enacting specific elements of the curriculum. Participants reported high confidence levels throughout the study but expressed some concerns related to their local contexts.
