Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this study is to take a closer look into preschool teachers interest of ICT, how often do they use digital tools in their practice and what do they think of implementing ICT into their daily work. I’m also interested to see if a certain culture that either is positive or negative towards the use of ICT develops in preschools.
- What interest do preschool teachers have for ICT?
- Do preschool teachers think they have sufficient knowledge about ICT?
- Is a certain culture created within preschools that either is positive or negative towards the use of ICT?
I used a quantitative survey as my method. 64 preschool teachers took part in it, 63 were female and one was male. The age range from 24 to 61 and the average age was 44 years old. The survey contained of 12 questions about their attitude towards the use of ICT in preschools. The data collected from the survey was analyzed and presented as diagrams.
Constructivism is my theoretical framework on this study because it’s a good way to analyze the results from the study to see if some preschools have develop a culture that have a certain attitude towards ICT.
The results show that majority of preschool teachers have a positive attitude towards the use of ICT but their knowledge about it is quite unimpressive. There is a strong majority that is willing to improve their knowledge. The use of ICT isn’t that widespread and only around 30 % uses ICT at least some time every week. When you look at the results you can see that there is a certain culture that has develop on certain preschools. Mostly the culture has a positive attitude towards ICT but in some cases it’s a negative one and that is problematic.
