Factors that Influence the Application of Web 2.0 Based Techniques for Instructional Purposes – A Case Study
Keywords:Web 2.0, K-12, Communication Technologies, Factors
This paper aims at investigating the factors which influence instructors of primary and secondary education into using Web 2.0 based teaching techniques in their teaching now and in the future. Two hundred and fifty three teachers participated in a survey conducted with a quantitative research method followed by short interviews for clarification purposes in the research area. The results showed that both gender and teaching experience are factors that influence this attitude, whereas the type of school seems to have no influence on educators’ decision to employ such tools in their teaching practices.
