dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project was to reflect the frequency of technology use by teachers in an Alberta secondary school. Most schools in Alberta are well equipped with technology due to the significant focus placed on students having access to up-to-date technology. This project will reveal how teachers are using technology in non-instructional and instructional ways. A survey was used to determine the frequency of use for the many software and on-line technology resources available to teachers. The survey also asked teachers to gage theft own computer competence, access and technical support level. The results aUowed for correlation between frequency of use and other factors influencing technology use. Interviews provided further support and clarifications of the survey results. The interview responses provided further insight into the issues surrounding technology use in the classroom. The interviewees were selected based on theft experience with technology and theft ability to represent the views of the staff. The results of the project indicate strongly that teachers must have more access to technology, more opportunities to participate in technology-related professional development and an efficient means of acquiring technical support if technology is to be more used more frequently. en
