Part I: Research Problem
Accurately and completely identify all research questions and/or hypotheses addressed within the chosen
article.

!This study identified the factors predicting the utilization of these Web 2.0 tools in classroom instruction.
It provides insight into the barriers of technology integration for future implementation.Three out of five
predictors included: teachers self-efficacy, professional development, and school administrative support
significantly predict the use of Web 2.0 tools.

!What factors predict teachers use of Web 2.0 tools in K-12 classrooms?

Part II: Literature Review


How would you characterize the general field of knowledge in which this research study is situated; e.g.,
Research on Teacher Effectiveness, Research on Self-Reflective Learning, Research on Gender
Differences in Mathematics Performance, etc.?

!Self-Efficacy, Professional Development, and Web 2.0 Tools for Integration


!List three (3) key points from the literature review that help the reader develop understanding of what is

already known, and determine the purpose of this study in light of other studies. Cite at least one study
used by the author to make each of the three points. In parentheses list the page of the article where each
of the key points may be found.

!Web 2.0 tools facilitate collaboration and interaction, offer possibilities for immediate feedback, foment
social connections and communities, and harness collective intelligence with no associated costs page 29
!Schools that integrate Web 2.0 tools in teaching may attract students to school work, meet individual
learning needs, develop students critical thinking skills, provide an alternative learning environment,
expand learning outside schools, and prepare students for lifelong learning pg 29

!The efficiency of professional development influences the adoption and integration of technology in
classroom practice pg 30

Part III: Research Design and Data Analysis


Describe the research design (experimental, co-relational, descriptive, case study, etc).

!sample and survey


!!
Describe the method(s) of data collection.
!A nationwide stratified sample frame was utilized to collect quantitative data through a web survey. A

multiple regression analysis was employed to isolate the factors influencing the integration of Web 2.0
tools in K-12 classrooms.

!!
Describe the method(s) of data analysis.Research methods and descriptive statistics were used to analyze

demographic information, to calculate the use frequency of Web 2.0 tools, and to determine teachers selfefficacy in using Web 2.0 tools.
Part IV: Findings
Briefly and accurately list all of the notable and significant outcomes of the study. Summarize and
describe the outcomes of the research. In this section you do not have to supply large amounts of statistical
data from the article.

!Both quantitative and qualitative data suggest the need for school administrative support for the

integration of Web 2.0 tools in instructional settings.he qualitative data suggested that school districts and
administrations not only need to understand the benefits but provide technology

!The literature reviewed indicates that professional development enhances teachers beliefs of self-efficacy
Part V: Limitations
Accurately describe the limitations of the study either specifically stated within the article or those
inferred by you through the lens of effective research practice.
there were not many limitations
Can the outcome(s) be generalized or transferred to groups outside of this study? To what other
populations can the results apply or not apply?
The outcomes can be generalized to other groups of teachers
Part VI: Validity and Reliability
If the study contains quantitative measurements, answer these questions: (a) How valid is the research?
(b) How reliable is the research? If the study contains qualitative data and analyses, answer this question:
(c) Did the researchers establish the credibility, neutrality, confirmability, consistency or dependability,
and applicability or transferability of their findings? If the study used mixed methods, be sure to answer
parts a, b, and c of this question.
Part VII: Implications for Practice
Thoroughly describe implications of the study on your personal practice, pedagogical, or instructional
choices. In other words, clearly discuss ways in which you can incorporate findings from this study into
your own professional practice both now AND in the future.
