dc.description.abstractThe study examines teachers’ perceptions of the use and integration of computer technology in public and private schools in Puerto Rico. Three research questions guided the study: How do English teachers perceive their own preparedness to integrate computer technology in the classroom? How, why and to what extent are these technologies used? How might English teachers integrate computer technology as a priority for teaching English as a second language? Data was collected through a questionnaire and interviews. Results revealed that teachers do not have the facilities to integrate technology in their classrooms. Some employ it amid limited access to computer labs, outdated equipment, and technology costs as barriers. To overcome this lack of technology, most of their work on computers is done at home. The study recommends that educational institutions and school administrators in PR must prepare language educators for integrating technology in the classrooms.
dc.description.abstractEste estudio examina la percepción del maestro al integrar la tecnología en escuelas públicas y privadas en Puerto Rico. Tres preguntas de investigación guiaron el estudio: ¿Cómo perciben los maestros de inglés su preparación al integrar la tecnología en el salón? ¿Cómo, por qué y en qué medida utilizan esta tecnología? ¿Cómo pueden los maestros integrar la tecnología en computadora como una prioridad a la enseñanza del curso de inglés como segundo idioma? La data se obtuvo de cuestionarios y entrevistas. Los resultados revelaron que los maestros no tienen facilidades para integrar la tecnología en su salón y lo emplean, a pesar de las limitaciones de equipos, laboratorios y costos tecnológicos. Para sobrellevar la falta tecnológica, la mayoría de sus trabajos lo realizan en casa. El estudio recomienda a las instituciones y administradores escolares de P.R. a preparar a los educadores del lenguaje a integrar la tecnología en el salón.
