  • Technology today has taken on new dimensions, not only in the shape of laptop computers, but in the use of cell phones, iPods, and handheld mobile devices. Web-based applications now provide the means for collaboration, and communication for learning. Teachers’ perceptions of the use of new technologies with their students have been largely cast aside, but should be more closely scrutinized, as it is through a teacher’s use that technologies get implemented in coursework and used by students. Disregarding teachers’ perceptions are ignoring a very crucial factor of technology integration- successful use depends on the attitude of teachers toward new technologies. What teachers believe about technology not only shapes their use of technology, but ultimately shapes the learner’s experience (Gulbahar & Gulven, 2008).
  • Today you will be viewing some results of studies where Gulf Teachers and Students have reported on their experiences using technology in their learning please add to our Global understanding by completing this short survey before the presentation.
  • Two problems facing technology research in tertiary classrooms deal with the length of time it takes for technology innovations to be integrated and differences with the way technology innovation are actually perceived.
  • In a larger study underway 247 students and 41 instructors have described their use of technologies and learning in outside their classroom.
  • Teachers reported less computer use at work than in their daily lives. PowerPoint and Internet searches were reported as the tools most helpful to classroom learning whereas, web links and email were viewed as beneficial to outside learning.
  • Students saw technologies as benefical but claimed that over useof technology makes it boring. Technology can begood and bad (good when it is effective, bad whenit doesn't work].”
  • Mobile technologies emerged as useful learning devices in the student pilot studies. In the current larger study, students have described SMS and Texting as the tool most frequently used in class.
  • Teachers described themselves ‘learners’ as just starting to think of cell phones uses other than voice.100% of the respondents described themselves as open minded to using portable or mobile technologies in the future with students
  • Technologies reported as helpful to the learning process by teachers and students in previous studies are provided on a page of links at the end of this presentation.

    Disregarding teachers’ perceptions are ignoring a very crucial factor of technology integration…
    What teachers believe about technology not only shapes their use of technology, but ultimately shapes the learner’s experience (Gulbahar & Gulven, 2008).
  • Technology Research
    Differences in Time & Innovation
    A Gap in Technology Understanding
    Doubts that Technology Benefits Students’ Learning
    Sudden Surge of Technology Integration Globally
  • The Technology ProjectHow it Started …
    2 UAE teachers’ reflections on technology
    use and learning: Gulf Region Pilot Studies
    Student Perceptions: A case study of 2
    classes at 2 UAE tertiary institutions (27)
    Zayed University & Higher Colleges of Technology
    Sharjah and Dubai, UAE
    Teacher Perceptions: A case study of 2 workshops held at 15th Annual TESOL Arabia 2009 and the UAE Research Forum at Al Ain University (25)
  • The Technology Project Context of Present Study
    GULF TEACHERS’ PERCEPTIONS OF TECHNOLOGY USE IN HIGHER EDUCATION
    1 University 2 Departments : Academic Bridge Program & Department of Languages
    3 Campuses in 2 Cities : Abu Dhabi and Dubai, UAE
    Current Respondent Numbers
    247 Gulf Students
    41 Gulf Teachers
  • From the Teacher’s Perspective
    What was said in the pilot studies ….
    Teachers reported a wide range of hours each week spent with computers at school 0-22. On average participants reported more time (11 hours) using computers in their daily lives outside of work than at work (4hours).
    The context of classes (subject area, language ability) were considered important factors in the successful integration of technologies.
    The most useful tools reported were PowerPoint and Internet searches.
    Web links and Email were described as helpful, but a preference to using these as support tools for outside learning (homework and projects) was described.
    .
  • From the Student’s Perspective
    “I feel that by using technology, we get motivation
    to learn. Technology makes learning fun …. “
    (Gulf Student)
    We surveyed students and found out what technologies:
    Students Liked
    Students Disliked
    They Were using
    They Wanted to use
    For More information Please See Concurrent
    Paper & Power Point :
    THE SURGE OF MOBILE TECHNOLOGY USE BY FEMALE STUDENTS IN TWO GULF UNIVERSITIES
    K. Bunts-Anderson, M.A. Campo
  • From the Student’s Perspective
    Students surveyed reported technologies they are using now that could be useful learning devices…
    PSP
    PDA
    Smart Phones
    The popularity of these devices has also emerged in a current study of Female Tertiary Students at Zayed University.
    The students reported that the mobile technology they most frequently used in the classroom was SMS/Text.
  • Gulf Teachers’ Perceptions
    “ I have never considered it a learning tool”
    (Gulf Teacher, 2009)
    In oral discussions (workshops) teachers described themselves ‘learners’ …
    100% described themselves as open minded to portable or mobile technologies use with students
    Benefits:
    “ Provides another option for contacting students”
    “It gives me clear organization for managing my time”
    Problems:
    “Don’t want to share my number with students”
    “ I don’t have an I-phone”
    On the Fence:
    “Seems to be of use- not the phone, but software like M2U…”
    (Gulf Teachers 2009-2010)
  • What mobile technologies, if any, would you like to use in the future? Describe how you would like to use it. أية تفنيات متحركة ترغب في استخدامها في المستقبل؟ كيف ستستخدمها؟
    Students……Smartphone Electronic Pens EBooks
    Teachers……Smartphone Electronic Pens EBooks
    “..they get cheaper”, “…when the technology is perfected”, “ …become user friendly”
    Do you have any plans to use technologies in the future? If so, what technology and how do would you like to use it? هل لديك اية خطط لاستخدام التقنيات في المستقبل؟ وان كنت ستستخدم, فما هي التقنيات التي ستستخدمها, وكيف ستستخدمها؟
    Teachers……I'd like to use e-books and make more use of mobile phone learning
    Anything and Everything that Facilitates Learning
    No. I almost feel the less the better. It just breeds dependence nurtures and the inability to function without it.
