Use and Availability of Instructional Technology for Schools on Guam
When considering schools on Guam, there are many options – both public and private – on the United States Territory Island. The variety of educational K-12 options include various curriculum choices and resources. Similarities and gaps in these resources have not been explored. This study sought to investigate the use and availability of instructional technologies at a cross section of some of the schools and districts that were willing to share with the researcher. The data gathered reveals similar technologies available to students and teachers, and reveals opportunities for discussion on collaboration. The results of this study reveal possible gaps in teacher preparation as it pertains to instructional technology preparation and training. The data collected in this study can inform future teachers on Guam as to what is currently in use in various schools and help focus teacher preparation skillsets with instructional technologies.
