Integrating technology in classroom: A study of a teacher's goals, knowledge and beliefs
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the Asia-Pacific Education Research Association (APERA) Conference, Singapore, 26-28 November 2008.
This study probes into the goals, knowledge and beliefs of a teacher who has had decades of teaching experience as she starts to adopt technology in her classroom teaching. The technology is Group Scribbles (GS) which supports rapid collaborative knowledge building (RCKB). Over a period of one year, we worked closely with the teacher together with another teacher to co-design the lessons enabled by GS for elementary grade 4 and 5 classes. An integrated framework based on RCKB and the Teacher Model Group (TMG) model is used to present out findings. We discuss the inter-play between the teacher’s knowledge, beliefs, goals as well as the classroom culture, and how that shapes her enacted practices in leveraging GS technology effectively for her class lessons. These traits and their interactions seem pivotal in overcoming obstacles in integrating GS technology in teaching.
