Research Participants Sought

Please share this w/ new teachers Calling New High School Teachers! • Do you have 1 to 4 years high school teaching experience? • Do you use technology in your classroom with your students? • Did you attend a teacher education program that taught you how to integrate technology in the classroom? Carol Deuling-Ravell is conducting a dissertation study about how beginning teachers overcome the barriers to technology integration in their classrooms. She would love to talk with you about your experiences integrating technology into your teaching. Your time commitment would involve a one-hour interview, and responses to 4 to 6 journal prompts. Any communication with Carol for purposes of this study will remain confidential. If you would be interested in participating in the study, please message Carol via Facebook at Carol Deuling-Ravell; on LinkedIn at Carol Deuling-Ravell or email at carol.deuling-ravell@waldenu.edu. Carol is my colleague at Walden and looks forward to hearing from you! (The photo? My class at Broadfording took this photo of themselves in a virtual world to meet a Durff Challenge - they all got the points too!)
