Abstract

Education teachers who attended an intensive training course in Computer Aided Learning (CAL) were surveyed to determine their subsequent use of computers in the classroom, what factors were influential in their computer use, and the reasons for taking the training course. Teachers reported an increase of computer use after the training course. Several factors were related to their computer use including available resources, administrator support, educational levels, teacher belief in computer effectiveness, teacher competence in CAL, and available budget money. Personal interest in CAL was ranked highest for why they attended the course with administrator request being ranked the lowest. Computer use increases when teachers are motivated and receive adequate training in CAL.
