  6. 6. Background • The “digital native” students have already found many Web 2.0 tools integral to their daily life • Many researchers have found that perceived usefulness, or the extent to which an individual believes that the use of technology will enhance performance, has a positive influence on behavioral intention (Davis, 1989; Hartshorne, Ajjan, and Ferdig, 2010; Roger 2003; Taylor & Todd, 1995) • The greater the perceived usefulness of a technological application, the more likely it is for the individual to use the new technology (Hartshorne, Ajjan, and Ferdig, 2010; Rogers, 2003). • Studies of teachers’ perceptions and opinions are critical because teachers’ perceptions are significant to the implementation of technology innovations in teaching and learning.

  7. 7. Purposes • Examine teachers’ use of Web 2.0 tools in education • Assess teachers’ awareness and perceptions of the pedagogical benefits of Web 2.0 technologies in teaching and learning • Investigate teachers’ interests and willingness of adopting Web 2.0 tools to support and supplement classroom instruction The University of Southern Mississippi

  9. 9. Design and Instrument • A quantitative approach was used to collect data from a questionnaire • The questionnaire is comprised of three parts: – Part 1 includes 13 demographic items for respondents, including items such as age, gender, years of teaching, online habits, and general attitude of using technology in education – Part 2 contains 20 items exploring the participants’ use of Web 2.0 tools or services – Part 3 includes 32 five point Likert-scale items examining teachers’ perceptions and interests of using Web 2.0 tools in teaching and learning The University of Southern Mississippi
