Abstract

BUSTOS NAVARRETE, Claudio Enrique. Teacher beliefs and use of New Technologies of Information and Communication in professors from five elementary and secondary Chilean schools. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.2, pp.511-521. ISSN 1657-9267.

This study explore the relation between five types of teacher's beliefs -constructivism, teacher self-efficacy, computer self-efficacy, self-efficacy for teaching with computers and beliefs about technology's effectiveness on education - and the frequency and variety of use for computer's instructional purposes. A questionnaire was completed by 112 teachers from five Chilean schools. Using correlation analysis, it was found that computer self-efficacy, self-efficacy for teaching with computers and beliefs about technology's effectiveness on education show greater effects on frequency and variety of use of technologies for instructional purposes over teacher self-efficacy, and constructivism.

Keywords : Profesores; Teachers; selfefficacy; constructivism; computer use; teacher's beliefs; New information technologies; cognition; educational psychology.
