Spetter, Troy, "The Prediction of Technology Integration in the Christian K-12 Classroom Based on Openness to Change, Technology Training, and Work beyond the Contractual Work Week" (2018). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 1830.
This predictive correlational study explored the lack of generalizable data regarding the use of technology in the Christian K-12 environment. The study searched for a predictive correlation between teachers’ overall use of technology, openness to change, amount of technology training, and hours of work beyond the contractual work week, based on previous study in public education (Vannatta & Fordham, 2004). The target population was all teachers who work in schools that are members in good standing with the Association of Christian Schools International in the United States. Using a random sample, teachers were asked to participate in the study and data was collected based on a self-report survey. This study provides insight in the Christian K-12 environment to understand how teachers in that setting compared to previous measurement of public school teachers.
